Urmila Chadayammuri

Center for Astrophysics
Postdoctoral Fellow


Urmila works at the intersection of simulations and observations of galaxy evolution and cosmology. She works with cosmological and idealised simulations, prepares detailed mock/synthetic observations, and compares these with observations from telescopes like Hubble, Chandra and eROSITA to test ideas about dark matter, cosmic plasmas and supermassive black holes. She holds her PhD in Astronomy from Yale University and a Bachelor's degree in Physics from Brown University.
