Research Interests: I am using spectroscopic and photometric data in the optical, near-infrared, and sub-mm to investigate the formation and evolution of galaxies in the early Universe. My research interests include (i) the physics during the Epoch or Reionization, (ii) early phases of galaxy formation and evolution, (iii) physical and structural properties of high-redshift galaxies, and (iv) cessation of star formation in massive galaxies. I am the U.S. lead principal investigator of ALPINE (http://alpine.ipac.caltech.edu/), and a full member of the COSMOS, SPLASH, and BUFFALO collaboration. I am also heavily involved in SPHEREx and the IPAC-led Joint Survey Processing initiative.
