My research centres on the internal dynamics and evolution of galaxies, primarily through detailed studies of (samples of) nearby systems, this across the whole electromagnetic spectrum. My research primarily exploits integral-field spectrographs and synthesis imaging, yielding three-dimensional observations of galaxies. My primary current projects include weighing the supermassive black holes lurking at galaxy centres (using high angular resolution observations with ALMA), and characterising the nature of galaxies when our universe was only half its current age (using multi-plex spectroscopy with KMOS on the VLT), but I am also getting increasingly interested in the small-scale structure of the interstellar medium and molecular clouds (again with ALMA).
