Specifically, I am - trying to understand how feedback processes from stars regulate star formation and dynamical evolution of gas in a cosmological context, in conjuction with the properties of outflowing gas from high-z galaxies,
- trying to measure how many photons escape from dwarf galaxies in the early universe,
- investigating how disk galaxies form in the universe where galaxy mergers are frequent,
For these purposes, I make use of three-dimensional AMR (radiation) hydrodynamics simulations (run with RAMSES or sometimes Enzo) I have been developing a stellar feedback model that can capture the momentum transfer as realistically as possible.
