I work with Professor Dan Marrone at the University of Arizona to study gravitationally lensed dusty star forming galaxies one billion years after the Big Bang.  I am also a member of the South Pole Telescope Submillimeter Galaxy (SPT SMG) collaboration.  My research primarily uses observations from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA).
