Research Interests: I study interstellar gas and dust with X-ray imaging and absorption spectroscopy. With imaging, I use Bayesian analysis to fit scattering halo surface brightness profiles for dust mass, grain size, spatial distribution, and dust-to-gas mass ratio. With spectroscopy, I study the fine structure in the photo-electric absorption edge of interstellar metals in order to constrain dust grain mineralogy. I apply my expertise with the Chandra HETG instrument and knowledge of the ISM to study the accretion flow of Sgr A*, the supermassive black hole at the center of our Galaxy.

Research Interests: My research interests are primarily in the field of galaxy evolution; particularly I am interested in studying the stellar populations of galaxies and the evolution of their global physical properties (such as mass, size etc). My expertise are in studying the stellar kinematics and using that to create dynamical models of the galaxies, and modelling the stellar populations of the galaxies. Having worked on early-type galaxies during my PhD, I am currently working on studying the disks of galaxies, using data from the MaNGA IFU survey, to hopefully place constrains on their evolutionary processes.
