Erica’s research program focuses on understanding the emergence of galactic structure: how the universe evolved from its uniform state shortly after the big bang to the rich diversity of galaxies today. With the launch of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, in conjunction with state-of-the-art cosmological hydrodynamical simulations, she is excited to uncover the physical processes that drive the structural and kinematic evolution of early galaxies.
