In my research, I study how galaxies evolve in different environments. Most of my time is spent organizing and coordinating the IfA’s many outreach programs – school visits, stargazing events, public talks, our annual Open House, press releases, and social media.
I am also the head of the UH National Gemini Office, and teach undergraduate astronomy classes.

I coordinate the majority of the IfA’s outreach programs. Some of these are listed on our Special Events page. These include:

I also act as the Public Information Officer, handling all of our press releases.
