I am an astronomer at the Arizona State University and an associate professor at the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE). 
My research ranges from properties of dust and gas in the (relatively nearby) interstellar medium to some of the farthest known galaxies. 
You can find a (somewhat) complete bibliography of my research.

Last few years I have mostly worked on finding and characterizing galaxies  back in the days when the universe was very young (less than 10% of its present age). We hope to characterize these galaxies and understand the galaxy and star-formation, rather than just collect these “pretty butterflies”.
The specific projects I have worked on this topic are 
(1) LALA (Large Area Lyman Alpha) survey : a project to find high redshift Lyman-alpha galaxies; 
(2) GRAPES and (3) PEARS, which used the grism on ACS on the Hubble Space Telescope. The GRAPES project did the deepest spectroscopy ever on the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. A popular article on the GRAPES project for the Astronomy magazine is linked here.
I am also involved with building ground based instrumentation IWI on the LBT; and a Joint Dark Energy Space Mission DESTINY.
Formal Teaching: I have taught graduate courses AST 531 (Structure and Dynamics of galaxies) and AST 532 (Extragalactic astronomy) at ASU. Upcoming courses: AST 112: an introductory astronomy course for undergraduates.
