My Work

Master Theses

At Leiden University

  • A Needle in a Haystack (Supervised by M. Rybak is & J. Hodge):

Detecting dense gas tracers in the z=3, gravitationally lensed SMG, SDP.81 through a matched filter in the uv-plane.


  • Enabling Precision Cosmology with Galaxy Clusters (Supervised by H. Hoekstra & S. Debackere):

An idealized study on how gas clumping affects the X-ray luminosity with the use of semi-analytical modeling.



  • Resolving the richest SZ-confirmed clusters in MaDCoWS through ACA follow-up. (PI: J. van Marrewijk)

  • SZ view of galaxy clusters across the transition phase for environmental quenching. (PI: L. Di Mascolo)

Current Projects

  • Studies on the ICM astrophysics and its an impact on the multifaceted

processes driving galaxy evolution:

  • A multi-wavelength Study on the ICM of the cool-core cluster RXC-J2014.8 that experiences enhanced sloshing and reduced starformation in the BCG. (T. Mroczkovski, G. Pöpping, J. van Marrewijk et al., in prep)

  • Studies on the origin of extreme star busts galaxies at high-z:

      • Monsters with empty bellies? Low dense-gas fractions in high-z

dusty star-forming galaxies (M. Rybak, J. Hodge, J. van Marrewijk et al., in prep)
