Senior Lecturer of Physics, University of Bath

I study the formation and evolution of galaxies, from the peak of cosmic star formation ten billion years ago to the present day.

I use multi-wavelength observations, obtained with the world's most powerful telescopes in space and on the ground, to investigate how and when stars were formed and galaxy structure developed.

To this end, I combine tracers of direct starlight, dust-radiated emission, ionized and molecular gas. Together, they shed light on the growth of galactic disks, the emergence of bulges, and the importance of mergers and smoother accretion.
