I work in the field of galactic stellar dynamics. My research interests include:

  • Dynamical modelling (measuring the structure and mass distribution) of the Milky Way, its constituents such as globular clusters, and other galaxies in the Local Group and beyond, using a large inventory of methods: Schwarzschild's orbit-superposition models, action-based distribution functions, Jeans equations, numerical simulations, etc.
  • Structure and evolution of galactic nuclei, dynamics of stars around single and binary supermassive black holes; black hole feeding rates.
  • Analysis of large observational datasets, e.g. from the Gaia space mission.
