- My research interest is to understand the formation and evolution of galaxies through cosmic times. Galaxies are made up of observable objects (e.g. stars, dust and gas), so they provide an important way to understand the fundamental characteristics of the Universe we live in. I study various properties of nearby galaxies as well as very distant ones.
