- About Me
My Research InterestsSurprisingly, only a minority of the normal matter can be probed by observations of starlight from galaxies. I'm interested in studying the remaining 90% of the baryons traced by the intergalactic gas. My overarching objective is to study the physical processes by which gas travels into, through, and out of galaxies. These processes may collectively be described as the cosmic baryon cycle. Such studies are essential to understand the formation of galaxies and the growth of structure in the Universe and hence impact the fields of astrophysics and cosmology.
I led a 5-year ANR-funded senior project on the "History of baryons: the intergalactic medium/galaxies co-evolution".
