My research interests are star formation in the interstellar medium (ISM), Galactic-scale star formation, global star formation laws, and astrophysical turbulence.

More specifically, my recent works target the density structure of the dense ISM, filamentary molecular clouds, and observational constraints for turbulence-regulated star formation models.

I currently lead a research group funded by the ERC Starting Grant scheme (the PROMISE group).
