Research overview

My main research interests can be divided into two basic categories: quasar absorption lines and galaxy evolution as a function of environment. The underlying theme of this research is to understand galaxy evolution through cosmic time, with a particular focus on chemical enrichment of the interstellar and intergalactic media. The work is built on three pillars which span the main tools we use to study galaxy evolution: observations, simulations and machine learning.
