Current Projects

    The quenching of star-formation in high-redshift galaxies, with CANDELS. See a selection of CANDELS-related news, including blog posts by me, on the CANDELS blog!

    Clustering of sub-millimeter galaxies in field and cluster environments, with the AzTEC bolometer array, while mounted on the ASTE telescope in Chile
