I am, currently, a postdoctoral researcher at the Minnesota Institute for Astropysics (Univ. of Minnesota).
I obtained my Ph.D. in Astrophysics at the Univ. of Minnesota and owing to the welcoming environment, I decided to continue my postdoctoral journey right here at UMN.


My research interests include studying the early Universe, especially galaxy formation and evolution in the early Universe. My interests extend to studying galaxy dynamics and observational cosmology. My current research looks to further our understanding of the formation and evolution of galaxies at high redshift by studying their star-formation and the physical processes involved therein.
