I study the physics of stars and stellar systems, their evolution, and the astronomical consquences. In particular I am interested in:
- High-energy astrophysical phenomena, such as supernovae, gamma-ray bursts, and gravitational waves,
- Stellar nucleosynthesis, and the measurement and use of stars' elemental abundances, and
- The dynamics of stellar clusters, the build-up of the Milky Way and the origin of the Sun.
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.

Brief professional biography
During 2011 and 2012 my work in Lund was funded by a Marie Curie fellowship; during 2009 and 2010 I was funded by the Wenner-Gren foundation. 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.
