Senior Lecturer at Astrophysics Research Institute, Liverpool John Moores University

I am a theoretical cosmologist working at the Astrophysics Research Institute (ARI) , Liverpool John Moores University. My research interests are focused on the formation and evolution of galaxies, in particular on the formation of our own galaxy, the Milky Way.

In particular, I am interested in the composition of the stellar haloes, the distribution of stellar streams and the nature of dark matter in galaxies.
