Research Interests

I am an observational astronomer interested in extragalactic astrophysics and cosmology. My favourite method for gaining empirical insights into these topics is integral field spectroscopy.

Software

LSDCat

LSDCat is a conceptually simple but robust and efficient detection package for emission lines in wide-field integral-field spectroscopic datacubes. The detection algorithm is based on a 3D matched-filtering approach for emission line objects. The software also measures fluxes and extents of detected lines. LSDCat is implemented in Python, with a focus on fast processing of large data-volumes.
