Visit by Andrew Wetzel

Andrew Wetzel is visiting DARK 7-9 September to interact with the galaxy evolution group and give a pre-lunch talk. 

Andrew is a Moore-Carnegie Fellow jointly at Caltech and Carnegie Observatories, having earned his Ph.D. at UC Berkeley and subsequently pursued postdoctoral research at Yale University.

Andrew’s research lies at the intersection of galaxy evolution and cosmic structure formation, emphasizing the use of cosmological simulations to understand the formation and evolution of galaxies in a cosmological context. He is particularly interested in understanding the low-mass (dwarf) galaxies around the Milky Way and in the Local Group, including the influence of cosmic environment on their evolution and their applications to near-field cosmology.
