I am a professional astrophysicist/cosmologist working in the field of galaxy formation and evolution. I've worked at the Centre de Recherche Astrophysique de Lyon in Lyon, France; in JILA at the University of Colorado at Boulder and at the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh. My work is theoretical in nature and involves using N-body and other simulation techniques to study the formation of galaxies and large-scale structure in the Universe.

My activities on Wikipedia[edit]

As an astrophysicist and member of WikiProject Astronomy, I'm mostly involved in editing and improving articles dealing with aspects of extragalactic astronomy and astrophysics. I frequently patrol the astronomy category for new pages and try to place them into the appropriate subcategories. I'm also interested in topics related to computing, education and the environment.
