Research Interests.

My primary research interests are focused in the study of the inter-galactic and circum-galactic medium and how these relate to the galaxy population.

Observationally, my focus is on performing large galaxy surveys around quasar sightlines, which themselves have been observed with high resolution spectroscopy - revealing the web of cosmic gas through absorption line systems.

Primarily this involves deep multi-object or grism spectroscopy using instruments such as VIMOS, MUSE and KMOS at the European Southern Observatory as well as COS, STIS and WFC3 on the Hubble Space Telescope. And in the near future these studies will be a key scientific component of upcoming facilities such as the James Webb Space Telescope and the Extremely Large Telescope.
