News: (09/2022) I've had the pleasure of working with several incredible PhD students this past year. Check out these new papers on globular clusters in Cen A by Hughes et al. 2022, on the Milky Way's Galactic bar by Lucey et al. 2022, predictions for the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope by Lancaster et al. 2022, and on interacting dwarf galaxies by Luber et al. 2022.
