I'm a seventh year graduate student working with Prof. Joaquin Vieira on galaxy scale lenses found using the South Pole Telescope (SPT-SMGs).
Star formation at high redshift
I'm interested in star formation at high redshifts. Especially in calibrating various star formation indicators in the distant universe. I use the code CIGALE for spectral energy distribution (SED) fitting of galaxies and determine their properties.
I'm part of a team that's going to be one of the first to observe from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). We plan on observing a sample of four lensed galaxies viz 2 dusty star forming galaxies and 2 UV-selected galaxies.
