As a 2nd year Ph.D. student in Astronomy, I work on researching cosmic reionization at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. In particular, my work focuses on the escape of ionizing radiation from "Green Pea" galaxies. Green Peas are a class of local galaxies that strongly resemble high-redshift star-forming dwarfs. My research interests extend to galaxy evolution, star-formation and Astrostatistics. I did my undergraduate studies at Tufts University majoring in Astrophysics and minoring in Mathematics.
