I'm currently a Post-Doctoral Researcher in Astrophysics at the University of Hertfordshire. My research interests span a broad range of topics, but I mostly focus on galaxy evolution, particularly in the first billion years after the big bang. Much of my work involves running and analysing large numerical cosmological simulations, and creating mock observations of the real Universe to better understand our observations. I also employ a number of machine learning techniques, and am particularly interested in using these to better understand and improve our simulations. See here for more detailed information.
