PPGF Fellow 2011

Dr. Jaime E. Forero-Romero, Postdoctoral Researcher in the Cosmology Group at the Astrophysikalisches Institut Potsdam, Germany. He will take up the Fellowship to work at UC Berkeley.

He says: "My main research subject is galaxy formation in a explicit cosmological context. I make use of massive numerical simulations to study the evolution of galaxy populations through cosmic history. Using this approach, I have mostly focused on two central lines: 1) to describe the assembly of dark matter halos and 2) to model galactic spectral properties in the UV, and the Lyman-alpha emission line. At UC Berkeley I will use this approach to investigate the observational properties of young galaxy populations during the epoch of reionization."
