I am the leader of the Galaxy Formation and Evolution Group. My 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:
Structure of dark matter halos
Global properties and structure of the hot gas within dark halos
