About My Work

I'm currently working on simulations of strong gravitational lensing in the central regions of elliptical galaxies. The process is to synthesize a population of galaxies and compare image angles of quads to observations of real galaxies. The goal is to constrain mass profiles and glean information about substructure within the inner halo.
