Michael Tremmel, PhD

YCAA Fellow, Yale University

I am a computational astrophysicist studying galaxy evolution and supermassive black holes using cosmological simulations

I completed my PhD in 2017 at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Yale Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics. I use cosmological hydrodynamic simulations to study the evolution of galaxies and their supermassive black holes (SMBHs). My main science interests include the dynamics of SMBHs, the effects of SMBH feedback on galaxy evolution, and the processes driving and regulating SMBH growth over cosmic time.
