I am a lecturer in Observational and Theoretical Astrophysics at the Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics, Lund University.

Research interests

I study the physics of stars and stellar systems, their evolution, and the astronomical consquences. In particular I am interested in:

My work is funded by, amongst others, The Swedish Research Council, The Swedish National Space Board, The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, and the eSSENCE collaboration.

Large collaborative projects that I am involved with are the LISA gravitational wave observatory, where I am the Swedish representative on the consortium board, and 4MOST, where I am working on the analysis pipeline for stellar spectra.

Prior to that I was a research fellow in the School of Mathematical Sciences, Monash University. My undergraduate education was in physics and my PhD in astronomy at Cambridge University.
