    "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...

    "Declining rotation curves, missing baryons and the origin of turbulence: the puzzling properties of high-redshift disk galaxies"

    Abstract: The redshift 2 universe is one of the most interesting epochs of galaxy evolution. It is the era with the peak of the cosmic star formation rate. Between redshift 3 and 1 the total stellar mass density in galaxies increased from 15% to 70%. It is also the time of rapid galaxy assembly and the epoch where galaxy morphology was determined.

    Observations of z=2 star-forming galaxies reveal physical properties that...

    Location: 

    Phillips

    "Modeling feedback effects from active galactic nuclei in galaxy scale simulations"

    Video of talk



    Abstract:    It is generally believed that feedback from active galactic nuclei (AGNs) has a significant impact on the formation and evolution of massive galaxies, galaxy groups and clusters. In this talk, I will present our recent progress in modeling AGN feedback in cosmological simulations of galaxy formation. I will show its impact on the...
