I am a IAU Gruber fellow postdoc at the Northwestern University, CIERA.
My main research subject is to study of the formation and properties of the first generations of galaxies. I am also very interested in different dynamical processes that take place in extrasolar systems and in our solar system. More about my research can be found here.
