She is an expert in the areas of galaxy formation and evolution, galaxy morphologies, galaxy mergers and interactions, and the properties of infrared galaxies. She is a co-PI of the large collaboration COSMOS (The Cosmic Evolution Survey), which is a large area multiwavelength extragalactic survey, utilizing nearly every major ground- and space-based telescope. She is a PI of the COSMOS-Web Cycle 1 JWST program (the largest GO program) and a leading co-I for CEERS (The Cosmic Evolution Early Release Science Survey). She teaches courses across the undergraduate and graduate astrophysics curriculum and mentors undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdocs in a wide range of research projects.
