Personal Details

I am currently an ESO Fellow in Santiago. I have duties in Paranal (UT4@VLT) and I'm conducting research in the area of galaxy formation and evolution.

Research topics

My main interest focuses on understanding of how galaxies formed and evolved, and how the environment affects this process. I have attacked these questions using multi-wavelengt observations as well as simulations. In particular, these are some of the projects that I am currently working on:

BUDHIES: An Ultra Deep HI Environmental Survey

"Jellyfish" galaxies

➥ Formation of S0 galaxies in extreme environments (in prep.)

EDisCS: An ESO Distant Cluster Survey

CHILES: Cosmos HI Large Extragalactic Survey

The effect of environment on gas in galaxies over 10 Grys of cosmic time

Other research areas:

➥ Galaxies at their formation redshifts / proto-clusters

Formation of the Milky Way

Mass outflows and fueling flows in Seyfert galaxies
