Personal profile

Research interests

I study the formation and evolution of galaxies, from the peak of cosmic star formation ten billion years ago to the present day.

I use multi-wavelength observations, obtained with the world's most powerful telescopes in space and on the ground, to investigate how and when stars were formed and the structure and kinematic nature of galaxies evolved.

To this end, I combine tracers of direct star light, dust-radiated emission, ionized and molecular gas.  Together, they shed light on the growth of galactic disks, the emergence of bulges, and the connection to the dark matter halos in which galaxies reside.

Willing to supervise doctoral students
