Galaxy Formation and Evolution

How do galaxies assemble their mass? How do galaxies evolve within the large-scale structure?

I used multi-zoom cosmological hydrodynamical simulations to quantify the mass assembled by merger and my smooth gas accretion (L'Huillier, Combes & Semelin 2012). 

Using the Horizon Run 4 (Kim et al. 2015) simulation, I quantified the interaction rate (merger and flyby, L'Huillier, Park & Kim 2015) and the alignments (L'Huillier, Park & Kim 2017) of haloes as a function of the environment (mass and large-scale density).
