I am a graduate student in astronomy at Harvard University. My current focus is on astrostatistics and applies machine learning methods to reconstruct dispersed star clusters. I am interested in understanding the chemical enrichment/dynamical history of the Milky Way. Besides, I am also involved in the study of nearby extragalactic evolution. We study about 500 early-types galaxies with prominent dust lanes. These objects have gone through recent minor mergers and are prototype in understanding star formation at low redshift. I also work on massive online open courses and develop interactive tools to teach astronomy.
