    Title: How stellar winds affect stellar evolution

    Abstract: I will begin with a brief review of the different mechanisms by which stars lose mass.  I will then describe how stellar winds influence stellar evolution across the H-R diagram.  I will mention the effect of stellar winds as they relate to galactic chemical evolution.

    "Formation of the First Galaxies and their Connection to Local Dwarfs"
     
    Abstract: Formation of the First Galaxies and their Connection to Local DwarfsAbstract: One of the biggest challenges in modern cosmology is to understand the first generation of stars and galaxies that formed during the cosmic Dark Ages. Since they reside in the observationally unexplored territory, we need to predict the properties of the first galaxies by pushing numerical simulations to new levels of physical realism and detail. In this talk, I will present the results of our...

    "What Can Galaxies Tell Us About The Epoch of Reionization?"
     
    Abstract: Reionization of intergalactic hydrogen in the universe's first billion years was likely driven by the first stars and galaxies. The timeline of reionization thus encodes information about their properties, but it is not well-measured. I will...

    "Self-consistent empirical modeling of the evolution of galaxy morphology"
     
    Abstract:  Recent advances in modeling the galaxy—halo connection have dramatically expanded the predictivity of data-driven approaches to galaxy formation modeling. Traditional empirical models such as abundance...

    "Simulations of molecular spectra for detection of biosignature gases and other volatiles"

    The ability to identify molecules within spectra is of importance for a variety of scientific and industrial uses. A compelling modern focus is the spectroscopic detection of biosignature gases in the spectra of exoplanet atmospheres....

    “Inside the Belly of the Beast: Globular Clusters, Dwarfs, and the Build-up of Massive Galaxies

     

    Massive galaxies represent both the beginning and the end point of galaxy evolution. The dense regions where they form are among the earliest to begin star formation at high redshift, and the deep gravitational...
