Research Interests: I am mainly interested in multi-wavelength studies of nearby galaxies.
Combining optical, infrared, ultra-violet and radio wave observations of
galaxies in the nearby Universe allows for detailed studies of their composition,
star formation properties, and dynamics.

I am also experienced in generating artifical data sets HI galaxy surveys.
Currently, I'm working towards producing full-size mock observations for some
of the next-generation HI surveys to be carried out on MeerKAT and ASKAP, and
ultimately the SKA.
