Star Formation, Galaxy Evolution, Star Clusters
I am particularly interested in how different natal environments affect the process of star formation. I study this by examining various populations of young star clusters in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies.
I am currently a First year Ph.D. student working under the supervision of Elizabeth Lada in analysing young embedded clusters in the Large Magellanic Cloud. I am originally from Nairobi, Kenya but have called the U.S. home for over 10 years. Before my Ph.D., I studied Physics at the University of California, Santa Cruz and received a Master’s degree in Astronomy from Leiden University, The Netherlands.
