The main focus of my work is to learn and understand more about how galaxies work – how they form and continue to change and grow to the present day, what processes are important in shaping their properties. I want others to share in the joy and contentment of learning more about the Universe and how it works. Finally, I want to be able to help others achieve their goals and contribute to our common good.
