Daniel Anglés-Alcázar
Flatiron Research Fellow, Center for Computational Astrophysics


I am currently a Flatiron Fellow at the Center for Computational Astrophysics of the Simons Foundation in New York City.

Before coming to the Flatiron Institute, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics (CIERA) at Northwestern University.

I got my Ph.D. in the Department of Physics at the University of Arizona, where I was a member of the Theoretical Astrophysics Program. Together with my supervisors Prof. Romeel Davé and Prof. Feryal Özel and other collaborators, I used large computer simulations and analytic models to investigate the formation and evolution of galaxies and their central supermassive black holes across cosmic time.

Before my Ph.D. at Arizona, I got a M.S. in Physics at the University of Puerto Rico. In collaboration with my supervisor Prof. Luca Olmi and others, I investigated the earliest stages of star formation in our Galaxy by using multi-wavelength observations of giant molecular clouds from the submillimeter to the near-infrared portion of the spectrum. I obtained my B.S. (Licenciatura) in Physics at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

You may read more about my research, check my publications, or have a look at some simulation movies.

Here is my Curriculum Vitae.
