Talk Abstract:

Our Milky Way galaxy is one of hundreds of billions of galaxies in the  Universe today. In this talk, I will use the latest astronomical  observations and cosmological simulations to tell the story of how  galaxies formed over the last ten billion years, and how our own Milky  Way galaxy will meet its end a “mere” three billion years from now.

About the Speaker:

She was awarded the Chambliss  Astronomy Achievement Student Award by the American Astronomical  Society for her contribution to the discovery of the largest number  obscured quasars to date.

Reina is currently a fellow at the Kavli Institute for Cosmological  Physics, University of Chicago. Her research interests include  observational cosmology (weak gravitational lensing) and galaxy  formation (disk galaxy kinematics).
