Research Interests

My research has focused on several key questions:

  • How do the compositions (i.e., dust, gas, stars) of the first galaxies compare to those of local galaxies, and is there a continuous evolution of these properties?
  • What are the relative effects of mergers, in- and outflows, and secular accretion on the baryon cycle, gas content, and star formation of these galaxies?
  • How can we improve current models and analysis techniques to maximize the yield of the relatively limited observations of high-redshift galaxies?

To tackle these open issues, I conduct observations of z>4 galaxies with current instruments (e.g., ALMA, JVLA), characterize their kinematics with tilted ring models and morpho-kinematic analysis, and derive gas masses through SED models and line tracers.
