Assistant professor


I am an assistant professor and an observational astronomer based at the
Cosmic Dawn Center. I study the evolution of massive galaxies from their initial formation epoch to the last stages of their lives by exploiting the capabilities of powerful telescopes covering the whole electromagnetic spectrum. I am particularly interested in how gas is transformed into stars and how galaxies stop growing and die, halting the formation of new stars. This is the core of my Galaxies: Rise And Death” (GRAD) project supported by the Carlsberg Foundation for the coming years 2019-2021.
