I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics at Lund University, Sweden, and leader of the Lund Galaxy Formation group (Galaxies@LU). Our research is focused on the formation and evolution of galaxies in a cosmological context. Using state-of-the-art computer simulations, we explore a wide range of topics, including how galaxies form in dark matter halos, the physics of galaxy mergers, star formation in the interstellar medium, stellar feedback processes, and the origins of galactic outflows.
