I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Florida. My research in galaxy evolution is focused on the physical processes of star formation and supermassive black hole growth. I use observations—from telescopes such as ALMA, the VLT, and NuSTAR—in concert with N-body and hydrodynamic simulations to understand the interplay between star formation, active galactic nuclei, and the interstellar medium in mergers. Beyond galaxy evolution, my research has implications for the mergers of supermassive black holes (and the emission of gravitational waves) as well our understanding of starburst galaxies and AGN as neutrino sources.
