RESEARCH

Working with Dr. Shy Genel (CCA), Prof. Greg Bryan (Columbia) and Prof. Daisuke Nagai (Yale), 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.

Additionally, as a member of the SMAUG collaboration, I have recently worked on understanding and surveying the birth conditions of stars using simulated galaxies with an eye towards characterizing the hyperspace of local ISM properties that inform and modulate the process of star formation.

For more details on my work, check back shortly!
