  • Preparing for Gaia: Simulations of the Milky Way

    Dr Andreea Font


    The Gaia space observatory (launched this year) will revolutionize our observational picture of the Milky Way, providing detailed information on over 1 billion stars in our Galaxy. Cosmological simulations are needed to interpret the data to constrain the formation history of the Milky Way. The student will use state-of-the-art high resolution simulations of disc galaxies to make predictions for Gaia.
