After completing my PhD at Yale University, I began as a postdoctoral fellow at the Max-Planck-Institut für Extraterrestrische Physik working on the formation and evolution of galaxies. I use some of the most powerful telescopes on earth and above it to directly image emerging galactic structure in the distant past. I am excited about the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope in 2018 and about working to make astrophysics inclusive.
