Why Does the Universe Look the Way It Does?

I am a theoretical astrophysicist who uses supercomputer simulations to study how the visible Universe evolves from the Big Bang until today. 
My scientific interests include:
 
  • Galaxy Formation and Evolution
  • Circum-Galactic and Intergalactic Gas
  • Supermassive Black Holes
  • The Epoch of Reionization
  • The Cosmic Web
  • Dark Matter and Dark Energy
