My main research is on magnetic fields in low-mass, main sequence stars and brown dwarfs. I want to understand how rotation and magnetic activity are related in low-mass stars and brown dwarfs. My approach is empirical, so I use a lot data from different observatories, including the Chandra X-ray Observatory, XMM-Newton, MDM Observatory, MMT Observatory, and IRTF Observatory.
I have also done work on understanding atmospheric properties of brown dwarfs.
I also did work on understanding the effects of stellar feedback (pre-supernova, supernova, stellar winds, and asymptotic giant branch feedback) on the evolution and morphology of galaxies. My approach was numerical, so I used smoothed-particle hydrodynamics simulations with the Gadget code.
