My research focusses on dynamical processes in the Universe, including
- the structure and formation of dark matter halos
- the formation and evolution of galaxies
- the structure of the multi-phase, turbulent interstellar medium and
- the formation of stars and stellar clusters.
Many physical processes in the Universe are highly non-linear and coupled in a complex way. A deep understanding of the dynamical Universe often requires detailed numerical simulations, coupled with sophisticated data analysis and visualisation. We are therefore also developing new software and data visualisation tools.
