The Annual Equinox Lecture: The Universe in a box: Understanding galaxies over cosmic time with Dr. Bian O'Shea from Michigan State University.


Galaxies come in a tremendous range of sizes - from tiny, ultra-faint dwarfs to enormous spiral galaxies like our own Milky Way - and the properties of the galaxy population change radically over the age of the universe.  Despite these facts, galaxies at any moment in cosmic time display startling regularities in features that can be related to the galaxy’s size and growth history.  In this talk, I will discuss some examples of how we use telescopes to observe a wide range of galaxy properties, how we use supercomputers to model the complex physics that drives their behavior, and the ways that one can use observations and models together to elucidate cause and effect in galaxy properties.
