I am a member of of the Galaxy Formation and Evolution Group. Our main research interests lie on the study of the physical processes leading to the formation and evolution of galaxies and galaxy systems, the influence of the environment on the properties of galaxies, the gravitational clustering of dark matter and baryons, and their cosmological implications.
The group is working on different projects, ranging from the analytical modeling of the growth of halo structure to the formation of the first stars and its implications on galaxy evolution. Here we present a brief description of our ongoing and recent work classified into two broad areas:
Hierarchical clustering Structure of dark matter halos Global properties and structure of the hot gas within dark halos
Galaxy formation and evolution
Analytical modeling of galaxy formation The formation of first stars and reionization Luminosity function of Active Galactic Nuclei Morphological evolution of galaxies
