Dr Andreea Font

Research Fellow


Liverpool John Moores University

Research summary

My main interest is in the formation and evolution of galaxies in the Lambda-CDM cosmology. I am tackling this problem from various aspects. For example, my models focus on the formation and evolution of stellar disks, the assembly of stellar halos, or on the properties of the neighboring satellite galaxies. An important part of my work consists in comparisons of theoretical models with available Local Group observations and in making predictions for future wide-field surveys of the Galaxy, such as Gaia.
