I am a CIERA postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University, studying physical processes related to galaxy formation. I focus on the physics of gas in dark matter halos, known as the circumgalactic medium (CGM), and on the coupling between active galactic nuclei and gas in their host galaxies, known as quasar feedback. I use a wide range of tools in my work, including analytic derivations from first principles, idealized and cosmological hydrodynamic simulations, and direct inference from observations. At Northwestern I collaborate mainly with the Galaxy Formation group led by Prof. Claude-André Faucher-Giguère.
Previously, I was an Alexander von Humboldt fellow working at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA) in Heidelberg, Germany, collaborating mainly with the ENIGMA Group led by Joseph Hennawi. I did my Ph.D. at the Technion, Israel Institute for Technology, under the supervision of Prof. Ari Laor.
