- Talk: ‘From the Big Bang to 2018: Simulating the Formation of Galaxies Through Cosmic Time’
Our biggest telescopes can see our cosmic environment out to billions of light-years away, looking back to the fluctuations shortly after the big bang. In this talk I will describe our place in the cosmic environment and the tools we use to simulate the astrophysical processes that produce galaxies, stars and ultimately ourselves.
