Personal Details

I am currently an ESO Fellow in Santiago, Chile. My time is split between research in the area of galaxy formation and evolution, and duties as support astronomer at Paranal Observatory (UT4@VLT).

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. These are some of the specific topics I am interested in:

➥ Galaxy evolution as a function of environment:

➥ Galaxy evolution as a function of cosmic time:

➥ Galaxy evolution as a function of stellar mass:

➥ Collaborations:
