I'm a PhD student working with Dr. Evan Skillman at the Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics. My main research focus is, very generally, using imaging from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in addition to ultraviolet and H-alpha observations from a variety of sources to help answer questions about galaxy formation and evolution. Most of what I do is part of the Panchromatic Hubble Andromeda Treasury (PHAT), one of the largest studies ever conducted with HST, though I do have some side projects as well. Feel free to check out my research section for more details.
