I am a Computational Astrophysicist and Data Scientist working as a Postdoc Researcher at the Department of Astrophysics, within the Institute of Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics, at Radboud University, in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

My main academic research interests are:

  • the structure and evolution of galactic magnetic fields;
  • the role played by cosmic rays and magnetic fields on galaxy formation and evolution, and
  • the physical properties of the interstellar medium



My work at Radboud University is part of the MAGALOPS project, which aim is to produce an accurate and well-motivated model of the magnetic field of the Milky Way by combining a range of observational tracers, including optical starlight polarization.

IMAGINE elephant

In order to achieve these goals, I am heavily involved in the development of the Interstellar MAGnetic field INference Engine, or the IMAGINE software, an API and set of software tools which enables the construction of a pipeline that combines a variety of datasets to constrain and compare galaxy models on a Baysian framework. This work is done work as part of the IMAGINE Consortium, an international and interdisciplinary collaboration with the objective of developing a better and more integrated understanding of the various components of the Galactic interstellar medium.
