I am a graduate student working with Dr. Claudia Scarlata on data from the WFC3 Infrared Spectoscopic Parallel (WISP) Survey. These data, from the Hubble Space Telescope, allow us to search for very high-redshift galaxies by detecting their emitted Lyman-\alpha. Our goal is to better constrain the bright end of the high-redshift ultraviolet luminosity function, which can tell us about the spatial density and evolution of galaxies at early times in the Universe.
