Research Interests

study our own Milky Way galaxy to find out how and why it evolved to its present state. The evidence is that our Galaxy is a fairly typical spiral galaxy. That means that by studying our home in the universe, we can learn a lot about the evolution of other spiral galaxies like it. We can also use the story of our own Galaxy to help interpret observations at high redshift, where we can catch galaxies in the process of forming.
