Research Interests

Eric is a postdoctoral researcher who works with developing numerical models of the formation and evolution of galaxies. These models are applied in super-computer simulations and can teach us about the galaxies we observe. In this way, we learn about the astrophysical processes determining how and why many different kinds of galaxies exist in our Universe. For example, one of Eric’s models can be used to look at effects linked to how individual stars form, evolve, and injects energy into the interstellar medium. This feedback process results in galactic-scale outflows and regulates star formation, explaining the low fraction of baryons observed in stars in the observed Universe.
