SCFE20 Virtual ICM Seminar Simon Mutch
6th May, 2020

The next ICM VIRTUAL SEMINAR is just round the corner

SAVE THE DATE to Dr Simon Mutch’s lecture entitled HPC Simulations of the early Universe that is live on May 7, 2020 at 16:00 (CEST)

Understanding the formation and evolution of the first galaxies in the Universe is a vital piece of the puzzle in understanding how all galaxies, including our own Milky Way, came to be. It is also a key aim of major forthcoming international facilities such as the Square Kilometre Array and James Webb Space Telescope. In order to maximise what we can learn from observations made by these facilities, we need to be able to accurately simulate the early Universe and model how galaxies affected and interacted with their environments.

Dr Simon Mutch a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for All-Sky Astrophysics in 3-Dimensions (ASTRO 3D) and a Research Data Specialist in the Melbourne Data Analytics Platform (MDAP) based at the University of Melbourne. Dr Mutch received a Masters degree in Physics from the University of Edinburgh and was awarded his PhD in astrophysics from Swinburne University of Technology, Australia in 2013. His astronomy research is focused on the first galaxies and their impact on the evolution of the Universe, which he studies using a combination of supercomputer simulations and theoretical modelling. Through his role with MDAP, he is also currently collaborating with academics in areas such as climate science and ecology, to help uplift their digital research capabilities. Dr Mutch contributes to the Australian astronomical community through a number of national committees and is an inaugural Science and Technology Australia STEM Ambassador, a position which sees him meet with policy and decision makers to advocate for the importance of STEM and related fields.
