I specialize in analytic and numerical modeling of physical processes in the interstellar medium (ISM). My goal is to obtain a deep understanding of how star formation operates in galaxies, and how the forming stars shape the ISM and regulate the evolution of galaxies across cosmic times.

Our group combines multi-physics magneto-hydrodynamics simulations with analytic theory to study the process of star-formation and galaxy evolution. We collaborate with observers to compare theory with observations in galaxies today and in high redshift galaxies forming in the Early Universe. An interesting aspect of our research is that it is inter-disciplinary, involving knowledge from different fields: chemistry, turbulence, hydrodynamics, atomic physics, and cosmology.
