Sustainable Development Goals



Research Interests
My research focuses on the following fields:
- extragalactic astronomy, exploiting space, and ground-based observations towards the multi-wavelength identification, physical characterisation and statistical studies of star-forming galaxies and gravitational lensing systems.
- big data visualisation techniques, exploiting both planetaria and VR technologies with the purpose of creating new immersive way for data exploration for astronomy and other fields of science. As such I am the project scientist of the IDIA Visulisation Lab based at UCT (https://vislab.idia.ac.za/)
