Research Interest

My research focuses primarily on developing theoretical models and making predictions for supermassive black hole (SMBH) and galaxy evolution. I utilize a range of numerical techniques including gravitational, hydrodynamics, and radiative transfer simulations from galactic to cosmological scales. I also collaborate with observers to characterize new and unusual populations of active SMBHs, as well as other theorists, including the Illustris simulation collaboration.
