Delivering Trailblazing Astrophysics For Over Four Decades

MH to the telescope

This is me at Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles. The photograph was taken by my friend Russell Sanzgiri.

I am an Associate Professor of Astrophysics, and researcher in the field of extragalactic astronomy at Stockholm University's Department of Astronomy and Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics, Sweden. Various details can be found among my vitae.

My research interests mainly concern galaxy evolution: how modern galaxies came into being, and what was around before. This is supported by the Swedish Research Council (Vetekskapsrådet), the Swedish National Space Agency (SNSA), and I am fellow of the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Fonudation. The approach is mainly observational, using data from the James Webb Space Telescope, Hubble Space Telescope, ESO's Very Large Telescope, various other optical and radio telescopes. You can find more details on my research.

In the classroom I teach Galaxies, Observational Techniques, and Physics of the Interstellar Medium (ISM). In the research group, many projects are available.
