I am interested in galaxy formation theory, in particular numerical models of active galactic nuclei (AGN). Using the moving mesh code AREPO, I investigate how different AGN feedback models affect galaxy evolution with a special focus on the conditions that need to be fulfilled for the AGN to be able to quench star formation, and on the complex interplay between AGN and supernova feedback.
