Expertise

Research interests

His current research interests focus on the structure and kinematics of galaxies in the Local Volume. This includes studies of the interstellar medium and star formation properties of galaxies, both large and small, studies of the accelerated evolution of galaxies as they fall into galaxy clusters, ineteractions and mergers of galaxies and the formation, as a byproduct of such interactions, of Tidal Dwarf Galaxies. Although he uses instruments covering most of the electromagnetic spectrum, his expertise lies especially in the (sub) millimetre and radio regime to probe the atomic and molecular gas components in galaxies.

Teaching specialisms
