My main research interests are the study of the properties of the first galaxies and their evolution over cosmic time. I am particularly interested in the potential of the Line Intensity Mapping Technique (IM) to constrain the Epoch of Reionization. IM of the hydrogen 21cm line can be used to probe the evolution of the ionization field while IM mapping of strong galaxies spectral lines such as CO, CII H-alpha and Lyman-alpha can be used to probe galaxies properties.
