About me

I am an astrophysicist and postdoctoral researcher working at Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics (ITA) of the University of Oslo (UiO), in the field of extragalactic astronomy. I am mainly interested in the properties of the interstellar and circumgalactic gas in star-forming galaxies, and how they evolve over Cosmic time. To learn about them, I use spectroscopic data from a number of world-leading facilities like the Hubble Space Telescope, the ESO Very Large Telescope, or the Magellan Telescopes.

I completed my Ph.D. from the department of astronomy at Stockholm University and the Oskar Klein Centre for Astroparticle Physics, Sweden, in December 2016. My Ph.D. advisors were Göran Östlin and Matthew Hayes. My work here was focused on the properties of strongly star-forming galaxies at low or moderate distances from Earth.

I got my Master’s degree from the DARK Cosmology Centre, supervised by Johan Fynbo, in 2011.
