A bit about myself

Are you a 2020/2021 student looking for a Part III project? Don't hesitate to get in touch to discuss our offered project. Our student last year won the IoA best Part III Project prize!

I'm a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute of Astronomy and the Kavli Institute for Cosmology of University of Cambridge. I investigate the formation of structure in our Universe employing massive cosmological numerical simulations. My recent research focuses on understanding the impact that physics frequently unexplored in these simulations have in the formation of galaxies. In particular, magnetic fields, stellar radiation, and cosmic rays.

 

I am also interested in understanding the magnetic component of our Universe, with particular interest in figuring out what is the cosmic magnetic field and whether primordial magnetic fields are important to understand our Universe.

Prior to my current role, I obtained my PhD at the University of Oxford, working with Julien Devriendt and Adrianne Slyz, studying magnetic fields in and around galaxies.

If you are interested in having me for a talk (scientific or outreach), please don't doubt to get in touch. I'm always up for visiting and  love to chat about science.
