I am a theoretical astrophysicist working in the field of star-formation, the interstellar medium (ISM), and galaxy evolution. My goal is to obtain a deep understanding of how star formation operates in galaxies, and how the forming stars regulate the evolution of galaxies across cosmic times. I combine multi-physics hydrodynamics simulations with analytic techniques to study the process of star-formation and galaxy evolution. I collaborate with observers to compare theory with observations in our Galaxy and in external galaxies. An interesting aspect of my studies is that it is inter-disciplinary, involving knowledge from different fields: chemistry, turbulence, atomic physics, and cosmology.
