A bit about myself
I'm a KIPAC fellow at the KIPAC institute of Stanford University. I investigate the formation of structure in our Universe employing massive cosmological numerical simulations. My recent research focuses on 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 what is the cosmic magnetic field and whether primordial magnetic fields are important to understand the properties of our Universe.
Prior to my current role, I was at the Institute of Astronomy and the Kavli Institute for Cosmology of University of Cambridge (UK). 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 inviting me for a talk (scientific or outreach), please don't hesitate to get in touch. I'm always up for visiting and love to chat about science.
