I am an assistant scientist in the North American ALMA Science Center at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. 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 numerical galaxy formation simulations to understand how star formation and black hole growth relate to the interstellar medium of galaxies. 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.
