Hello and welcome to my homepage! I am a graduate student at the Institute for Astronomy at University of Hawaii, Manoa. My research focuses on dusty star-forming galaxies in the distant universe, specifically what powers their star-formation and what is their relationship with AGN? I also have a passion for education, and have taught multiple inquiry labs as part of the ISEE/Akamai Professional Development Program. In the Spring of 2013 I created a 5-part seminar series for graduate students and post-docs on Careers for Astronomy PhDs that I gave over a span of 5 weeks at the IfA. In my free time, I enjoy taking advantage of life in Hawaii by surfing, hiking, and hanging out on the beach. I hope you enjoy my site!
