Event Description:

The present day population of galaxies is very diverse. While some galaxies are full of gas and vigorously forming stars, others lost their gaseous fuel and stopped forming stars billions of years ago. But what causes galaxies to have such diverse behavior? I will discuss our current understanding of how galaxies form and grow over time, as well as what causes them to cease forming new stars and "die".  I will talk about some of my own research that explores these processes, and highlight some open questions that astrophysicists are still working to answer.
This event is in English.
