Science Interests
My research focuses on the chemical abundances of nearby star-forming galaxies. I probe neutral gas abundances using HST-COS absorption line spectroscopy and use Integral Field Units (IFUs) to perform spatially resolved chemical abundance studies of the ionized gas. Other interests include gas kinematics, ionization parameter mapping, chemical evolution and star-formation processes.
