HST Theory grant

Space Telescope Science Institute has awarded me, together with fantastic co-investigators Shea Garrison-Kimmel, Phil Hopkins, Cameron Hummels, Sarah Loebman, and Robyn Sanderson, a Hubble Space Telescope Theory grant of $116,000 for Understanding the physics of gas stripping and star-formation quenching of the satellite dwarf galaxies in the Local Group. Our goal is to use our new Latte simulations to understand how satellite dwarf galaxies evolve after they fall into a host halo like the Milky Way, with emphasis on how (internal) stellar feedback and (external) environmental processes like ram-pressure stripping remove their gas and quench their star formation, as observed in the satellites of the Milky Way.
