Urmila Chadayammuri

Center for Astrophysics


Urmila Chadayammuri is a predoctoral fellow at the Chandra X-ray Center, supervised by Paul Nulsen and John ZuHone. She uses simulations to understand the effects of mergers on the intra-cluster medium, and how these non-equilibrium systems can nevertheless tell us about the dark matter masses and dynamics of the component substructures. Previous work has looked into the details of AGN activity in cosmological clusters, and comparisons of dark matter substructure in simulations and observations.
