Research Interests: I am primarily interested in evolution and dynamics of galaxy an I try to explore this through optical instrumentation. My primary tool is integral field spectroscopy. I am also interested in direct detection of exoplanets.

Research Interests: I am interested in using integral field spectroscopy to understand how galaxies evolve, how they acquire new material, and what causes them to start or stop forming new stars.

Research Interests: My research interests are primarily in the field of galaxy evolution; particularly I am interested in studying the stellar populations of galaxies and the evolution of their global physical properties (such as mass, size etc). My expertise are in studying the stellar kinematics and using that to create dynamical models of the galaxies, and modelling the stellar populations of the galaxies. Having worked on early-type galaxies during my PhD, I am currently working on studying the disks of galaxies, using data from the MaNGA IFU survey, to hopefully place constrains on their evolutionary processes.
