Biography

I am a TAC Fellow working at both UC Berkeley's astronomy department and the Lawrence Berkeley Lab. I'm interested in the formation of galaxies and the clustering of galaxies, haloes and matter, as well as the links between all of these subjects. Most of my work is based on hydro-cosmological simulations of galaxy formation, and semi-analytical models run on N-body simulations. I obtained my PhD in 2014 after working with both Joop Schaye at Leiden Observatory, the Netherlands, as a Huygens Fellow, and Simon White at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics in Garching, Germany, as a CosmoComp Fellow.
