I am a professional astronomer, working primarily on improving our understanding of galaxies. I work at the Centre for Astronomy and Particle Theory of the University of Nottingham in the UK, as an STFC Advanced Fellow and proleptic Lecturer.
Galaxies are huge collections of stars and matter, scattered throughout the vastness of our universe. They display a wide diversity in their properties, such as size, brightness, shape and colour. These properties can tell us the history of how the galaxies formed and evolved over time, so we can answer questions such as when were their stars born, why have some stopped forming stars, and how often have they interacted and merged with one another? Our eventual aim is to understand all of the processes that go into forming the diverse population of galaxies.
