This Saturday, 11 January, we are pleased to present "extragalactic archaeologist" Dr. Charlie Conroy from UCSC, whose talk is titled "Galaxies from Beginning to End".
Dr. Conroy's area of focus is the formation and evolution of galaxies and globular clusters, and the connection between galaxies and large-scale structure (i.e., dark matter). He studies the stellar populations of galaxies and globular clusters with models that he has been developing for several years. His research lies at the interface between observations, theory, and simulations.
Recently, Dr. Conroy won the prestigious Packard Fellowship for Science and Engineering. Granted by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the $875,000 award is one of the most celebrated prizes in the country for young professors.
