Research

I aim to investigate the environmental dependence of multiple galaxy properties inside large surveys by focusing primarily on galaxies that live in void regions. Void galaxies tend to represent a young and relatively less evolved population of galaxies because of the pristine environment in which the void galaxies grow. Consequently, there is strong reason to believe that careful examination of galaxies in void regions could hold important clues about the complex relation between environment and galaxy formation.

Goals

Ultimately, my goal is to advance our understanding of the complex relationship between galaxy formation, large-scale structure of the universe, and the mysterious dark matter through the power of statistics and by aiding in the quest to obtain and analyze survey data.
