Academic interests

My research is focused on the complex properties of interstellar gas in strongly star forming galaxies, and how these change over cosmic time as the Universe evolves. I mainly use spectroscopic data from such great facilities as the Hubble Space Telescope, the Very Large Telescope and the Magellan Telescopes.

For more, see my personal web page.
