I am an observational astrophysicist studying galaxies near and far, with a focus on the mechanisms regulating galaxy growth and evolution across cosmic times.

I obtained my PhD in Physics at the University of Cambridge in 2015. After that, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zurich, before starting my Marie Curie Fellowship at the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics in late 2016. In September 2019 I will join the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics of the University of Oslo as an Associate Professor.

My main research areas are the study of the cold and dense molecular gas - which is the raw fuel for star formation - and the investigation of how accreting super massive black holes and intense episodes of star formation affect galaxy evolution.

I have accumulated hundreds of hours of observations with single-dish telescopes and interferometers operating at sub-millimetre and millimetre wavelengths. I collaborate with several international teams and extremely enjoy travelling around the world and visiting astronomical observatories, which are among the most beautiful and inspiring places on Earth.
