This is a past event.
Dr. Shy Genel of FlatIron Institute will be presenting at this week's physics colloquium. Please join the presentation on Thursday, April 21st at 4:00pm via Zoom.
Cosmological Hydrodynamical Simulations at the Intersection of Galaxy Formation and Cosmology
In this talk Dr. Shy will discuss how the process of galaxy formation connects a vast range of scales and its study provides us with opportunities to learn not only about galaxies but also about cosmology. He will review a few of the fundamental open questions in galaxy formation and how cosmological hydrodynamical simulations serve as a powerful tool for diverse studies in this field. He will conclude with a few notes on how machine learning is opening new possibilities in the intersection of galaxy formation and cosmology.
Bio: Dr. Shy Genel studies galaxy formation and evolution using computer simulations. He has played a key role in developing some of the largest simulation suites in this field, such as Illustris, IllustrisTNG and CAMELS, and he specializes in galaxy growth and angular momentum. Dr. Genel is based in New York City and serves as a Research Scientist at the Flatiron Institute's Center for Computational Astrophysics and an Adjunct Research Scientist at Columbia University. Prior to his current positions, he held a postdoctoral Hubble Fellowship at Columbia University and an ITC Fellowship at Harvard. He received his PhD in 2011 from the Ludwig-Maximillians-University in Munich under the guidance of Prof. Reinhard Genzel.
