About me

I currently am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Theory and Computation (ITC) of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Before moving to the ITC in April 2018, I was a Postodoctoral Associate in the Computational Structure and Galaxy Formation Group at the MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research. My research interests lie in the broad field of galaxy formation and evolution. I worked on a variety of science topics in this field and in particular on the following research areas:

  • The disc-halo connection in star-forming galaxies;
  • Formation and evolution of disc galaxies in cosmological simulations;
  • Magnetic fields in cosmological simulations and their role in galaxy evolution.

The main driver behind my research work is to achieve a better understanding of how the evolution of galaxies – and in particular disc galaxies – and their environment is influenced by their mutual interplay.
