Biography

Professor Mike Boylan-Kolchin is a theoretical astrophysicist who works on galaxy formation theory and its interface with cosmology. Recently, his research has focused on near-field cosmology, using detailed studies of nearby galaxies to address a wide variety of questions related to dark matter and galaxy formation physics across cosmic time. His work combines numerical simulations, analytic models, and observations.
