My research falls in the category of astrostatistics, an interdisciplinary field of astronomy and statistics. On the astronomy side, I’m interested in properties of the Milky Way Galaxy such as its mass and amount of dark matter, as well as its stellar populations, globular cluster population, and central nuclear star cluster. On the statistics side, I’m interested in Bayesian hierarchical modeling, Markov Chain Monte Carlo techniques, and in general, implementing and developing modern statistical methods to and for astronomical problems.
