Research Interests: 

My current research interests involve studying the effects of galaxy cluster environment on the star formation rate of galaxies. In particular, I am working on quantifying the dust-obscured star formation rate in protoclusters of galaxies located at redshifts of 2-4. This will allow us to trace galaxy growth in protoclusters at high redshifts.
