As a member of the SMAUG collaboration, I am currently working on understanding the phenomenon of star-formation using simulated galaxies with an eye towards characterizing the hyperspace of local ISM properties that inform and affect the birth environments of stars.

Additionally, with my advisors Dr. Shy Genel and Prof. Greg Bryan, my thesis research involves harnessing large-volume cosmological simulations as well as high-resolution zoom-in simulations to understand the assembly and enrichment history of galaxy clusters, the largest collapsed structures in our universe.

For more details on my work, check back shortly!
