Dr. Sarah Wellons studies galaxy formation and evolution. Her research focuses on extreme, unusual galaxies that formed when the Universe was very young. She uses computer simulations to understand the physics governing these galaxies’ formation, including modeling of hydrodynamics, gravity, star formation, supernovae and stellar feedback, cosmology, and supermassive black hole accretion and feedback. Her theoretical work informs cutting-edge extragalactic observations of the most distant known galaxies.
