I am interested on how stellar clusters form and evolve in a hierarchical galaxy assembly context, with my ultimate goal being to be able to use old, massive stellar cluster populations as near-field cosmological tracers. For that, during my PhD I have worked with hydrodynamical, cosmological simulations that include the co-formation and evolution of the stellar cluster populations alongside their host galaxies: the E-MOSAICS project (Pfeffer et al. 2018, Kruijssen et al. 2019), and the EMP-Pathfinder simulations (Reina-Campos et al., in prep.).
If you are interested, here is a recent online colloquium I gave to the Department of Astronomy at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil).
Over the past years I have participated in a variety of outreach activities. Here you can watch my TEDxUniHeidelberg talk from July 2017.
