I'm interested in extragalactic astronomy, specifically, the interrelationship between a galaxy's gas content, stellar populations, and morphological structure. My research involves using integral field spectroscopy from targeted WIYN observations and the MaNGA survey to provide spatially-resolved star-formation histories. I'm also interested in machine-learning algorithms, developing "eigengalaxies," and applying computing & data reduction best-practices. This often involves forays into instrumentation.
