Academic and research departmentsAstrophysics Research Group, Department of Physics.
Hello! I am a research fellow working on the chemical evolution of galaxies at the University of Surrey. I obtained my PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics (MPA) in 2014, and my Masters degree in physics from Imperial College London.
My main research interests are in galaxy formation modelling and observations, in particular the chemical evolution of star-forming galaxies, ellipticals, and galaxy clusters. I am a main developer of the L-Galaxies semi-analytic model of galaxy evolution, and use this model to interpret spectroscopic data from large galaxy surveys and integral field units (IFUs).
