I look for simple astrophysical stories. Currently I am studying clouds of gas in simulations of galactic outflows, in order to better understand the forces that bring clouds of gas to high enough speeds to escape galaxies, and to understand what a typical cloud is. I like to keep an open mind and learn new things--my journey has included supernova remnants, dwarf galaxies, black hole accretion, cosmic ray winds, and star formation.
