Research Interests

I am interested in multiwavelength observational studies of galaxy formation and evolution. Most of my recent effort focuses on understanding the submillimeter alaxy population, which emits strongly in the far-infrared and submillimeter but is hidden by dust in the optical. Such galaxies are nearly entirely missed by optical observations but they contribute to the cosmic star formation history as much as (if not exceeding) galaxies found by optical telescopes. They will be the major targets of next-generation instruments such as ALMA, James Webb Space Telescope, and the Expanded Very Large Array. I am also interested in finding the most distant galaxies and supermassive black holes in the optical and near-infrared, dense intergalactic medium that absorbs ultraviolet light from distant objects, host galaxies of distant gamma-ray bursts, and developing software for wide-field optical and near-infrared imaging observations.
