About this Event

The Shropshire Astronomical Society has invited Dr Julian Onions of Nottingham University to discuss: Galaxies - One Gigayear at a Time. Dr Onions works with computer simulations of large fractions of the universe to understand trends in galaxy formation and evolution. Investigating the tools that help us form and analyse such simulations such as halo finders, tree builders and semi-analytic models.

He also does a number of outreach activities and helps to teach undergraduate astronomy courses, which means he can translate these complex subjects for a lay audience.
