Research Interests

My research group studies the formation, structure and evolution of galaxies, in particular by looking at our own Milky Way Galaxy, together with nearby galaxies in the Local Group. It is believed that these objects form at least in part through the gradual agglomeration of many smaller dwarf galaxies. The process and observable consequences of this hierarchical structure formation are a major focus of the group. We are also part of several broader collaborations on this work.

Broadly, our work can be split into the following topics:
