Research Statement

I aim to unravel the chemodynamics of M31 via spectral fitting of integrated light spectra from APOGEE. I will then compare my results to the Milky Way. In the future I would like to expand my analysis to other Local Group galaxies. I am also interested in observation, and would like to work with the Eccles Observatory.
