I am a Ph.D. student at the Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics of Lund University with the goal of figuring out how galaxies form and evolve in our Universe. To do this I investigate how simluations of galaxies are effected by different physical processes as well as in different environments. I am also interested in comparing my results to data from large surveys of our Milky Way, in order to understand the detailes of how our own galaxy came to be.

In my current project I am testing how moving supernovae projenitors to low density gas, i.e., tracing trajectories of runaway OB stars, affects global properties of star forming galaxies. [Spoiler alert] The increased energy coupling strength for supernovae explosions in low density regions leads to the driving of a strong galactic winds in my simulations including massive runaway stars.

If you are interested in the work I do, don't hessitate to contact me.
