My research focuses on the evolution of galaxies and the growth of structure in the Universe. I use two approaches to address questions in these fields. Firstly, I work with multiwavelength datasets to gain new insights into galaxy formation and evolution by
contrasting the views provided by radiation emitted in different wavelengths (in particular those in the mid/far-infrared, and submillimetre). The second approach I use is the detailed study of nearby galaxies where the increased spatial resolution afforded by ground based telescopes and space based observatories enables a better understanding of the physical processes governing galaxy evolution.
