Daniel Mikkola

Doctoral Student


My name is Daniel Mikkola and I study the dynamical structure of the Milky Way Galaxy by analysing data produced by the Gaia space observatory and by making numerical simulations of galaxies. 

The title of my PhD is "Galactic dynamics in the Gaia era" and I am under the supervision of senior lecturer David Hobbs and senior research fellow Paul McMillan.

I started in 2017 and expect to be finished in 2021.
