I am a postdoc in Physics at the University of Michigan.


My main research interests in Astronomy include:

    Galaxy Clusters

    Cluster Detections

    Cosmological simulations

    Galaxy population  & Evolution in clusters and groups

    Star Formation History in clusters out to high redshift

    Cluster Surveys


I am an observer primarily.  I am working with great scientists in Dark Energy Survey team at the University of Michigan, as well as awesome collaborators in the South Pole Telescope team.  I have primarily used the telescope at CTIO, Blanco telescope for follow-up studies of SZ clusters, as well as X-ray selected clusters.


I earned my B.S. in Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Minnesota, and Ph.D. in Astronomy at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
