I am a SARChI Postdoctoral Fellow working on multiwavelength studies of star-formation (SF) feedback and the interstellar medium (ISM) in local Universe. Current project's goal is to understand the ongoing physical processes in the ISM across various environments in resolved, nearby galaxies. In general, we endeavor to study the energy balance in the ISM that controls the SF, shaping the evolution of galaxies across cosmic time, and lead to the diversity of galaxy properties in the Universe.
I was a PhD sudent at Max Planck Institute for Astronomy, and defended my thesis at the University of Heidelberg in 2015.
