Research Interests

This page is a summary of my research activities. To read more details about the following projects, please click on the titles.

My research focuses on structure formation using numerical simulations, from galaxies to the large scale structures. I am interested in cosmological structure formation and in the interplay between galaxies and their environment. For this purpose, I mostly use the GOTPM and Gadget-3 TreePM codes. We recently performed the Horizon Run 4 simulation, using $6300^3$ particles in a $3150\,h^{-1}\,\mathrm{Mpc}$ box in order to study galaxy evolution in the cosmic web.

During my PhD, I have studied the role of gas accretion on galaxy formation, using multi-zoom simulations from Sémelin & Combes (2005) run in the framework of the French Horizon Project (that is completely unrelated to the Horizon Runs).
