I am an astrophysicist working with galaxy formation and evolution, and trying to understand how galaxy clusters and proto-clusters formed. Here you will find information about my past and current works - and probably some useless curiosities about me. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy and the Institute for Computational Cosmology - Durham University.
