Research Interests / Responsibilities:
I'm a theoretical astrophysicist and cosmologist, working on the formation of galaxies, the properties of Dark Matter and measuring the larger scale nature of the Universe. To study the evolution of galaxies and the interaction with Dark Matter, I run billion-particle simulations on supercomputers around the world. This has resulted in numerous refereed research articles, public interviews and presentations at both Universities/Conferences and public outreach events ranging from planetarium shows to pubs. I am particularly excited by spreading the latest discoveries to those non-professional (i.e. unpaid) astronomers, including school visits and evening lectures.
