Personal profile

Biography

My research is in Galaxy formation and evolution. I have expertise in theoretical modelling of physical processes in galaxies, such as gas accretion onto galaxies, star formation, stellar feedback, gas accretion onto black holes, etc.
I also work with large galaxy multi-wavelength survey, and on the co-evolution of galaxies and their central supermassive black holes.
