I'm particularly interested in the early Universe, how galaxies formed, and which physical properties governed the galaxies at that time.
Why? Because galaxies are the magnificent and beautiful building blocks of our Universe.
Understanding these guys helps us understand the cosmos around us and our place in it.
Specifically, I use hydro-dynamically simulated model galaxies, conducting radiative transfer of their emitted light out through
the interstellar and intergalactic medium in order to calculate how they would actually look if observed from Earth.
In essence, by comparing real and synthetic observations, we can learn about the physics of the real ones,
e.g. their masses, star formation, gas kinematics, temperatures, dust contents, etc.
More generally, I would like to contribute to expanding our horizon, in one way or another.
