I am an Associate Professor of Astrophysics in the Oxford University Department of Physics, and joined Oriel College as a Tutorial Fellow in Physics in 2017.
I obtained my PhD in 2000 from the Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris working on the theory of galaxy formation and evolution. I subsequently became a Leverhulme post-doctoral fellow in the Astrophysics department at the University of Oxford and a Junior Research Fellow at Wolfson college. Following a post-doctoral fellowship at the Centre de Recherche Astrophysique de Lyon, I became part of the Research Staff before returning to Oxford.
My research interests include the following areas:
- Astrophysical Fluids
- Dark Matter & Dark Energy
- Galaxy Surveys
- Large-Scale Structure
- Plasma Theory
