I am working as an associate professor at Astronomy and Astrophysics department, Eberly College of Science, the Pennsylvania State University.
I am also a part of the
Center for Theoretical and Observational Cosmology (CTOC) in the Institute for Gravitation & the Cosmos (IGC).
Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral fellow in theoretical cosmology in
Physics and Astronomy department in
the Johns Hopkins University
and the TAPIR (Theoretical AstroPhysics Including Relativity) group in
working with Prof. Marc Kamionkowski.
Even before, I was a graduate student of
Texas Cosmology Center (TCC)
the Astronomy Department in
the University of Texas at Austin.
My thesis adviser is Prof. Eiichiro Komatsu, and here are my academic trees from
mathematics genealogy project
I am working on various aspects of theoretical cosmology,
but I also enjoy working with the real data.
In particular, I am working for a high redshift galaxy survey called
(Hobby-Eberly Telescope Dark Energy eXperiment).
The main theme of this mission is studying properties of dark energy
by analyzing the distribution of galaxies (Lyman-alpha emitters).
In current survey design, we shall observe about a million galaxies
within 540 sq. deg. area in the sky at redshift of 1.9 < z <3.5.
We have been obtaining data from 2017.
