I’m Christopher Lovell, a doctoral student in Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Sussex.
My research focus is on the formation and evolution of galaxies, particularly in the first billion years after the big bang. I employ cosmological numerical simulations, as well as machine learning techniques, and am particularly interested in the interface between the two.
Additional to this blog I also write for Astrobites, where postgraduates in Astronomy and Astrophysics write about the latest research papers in a more accessible format for undergraduates or the public in general. You can read my posts here.
I’m active on Stack Exchange, mostly in the Astronomy and Stack Overflow sites; the flair below links to my profile. I record my reading habits on Goodreads.
