Research Interests: My primary research interests are in observational cosmology, and galaxy formation. I am currently lead of the COSMOS collaboration, the lead and co-lead of several aspects of the Euclid Cosmology mission, and lead of the WFIRST photo-z effort for cosmology. I am also pioneering the detection of large scale structure at z>4, and the formation of the ISM at z>5 for which I obtained several large allotments of Spitzer time in the past five years and membership in the Hyper-Suprime-Cam collaboration.
