I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Florida. My research is focused on the physical processes that drive evolution of galaxies across a wide range of mass. I use observations—from telescopes such as ALMA, the VLT, and NuSTAR—in concert with N-body simulations to understand the interplay between star formation, active galactic nuclei, and the interstellar medium in mergers. In particular, I study the molecular gas properties of extreme starbursts and the evolution of starburst and AGN activity as mergers progress.
