Dr Scott Kay - research
I work in the field of computational cosmology, running massively-parallel numerical simulations to study the formation of galaxies, clusters and large-scale structure in the Universe.
Particular topics that interest me are:
- Cosmological hydrodynamic simulations of galaxies and clusters
- Hydrodynamic simulation methods
- Modelling astrophysical processes, especially feedback from AGN
- Impact of baryonic physics on cosmological tests
I am a core member of the Virgo consortium, famous for producing ground-breaking simulations such as Millennium, Aquarius and EAGLE. I am also a member of the Euclid consortium.
