My research focuses on galaxy formation theory and its interface with cosmology. Recently, I have worked extensively on near-field cosmology, using detailed studies of nearby galaxies to address a wide variety of questions related to dark matter and galaxy formation physics across cosmic time. I combine numerical simulations, analytic models, and observations in my work. For more information, see my research page, publications, or CV (pdf).
