Lauren Anderson joined the foundation in 2016 as a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Computational Astrophysics. She recently graduated from the University of Washington with a Ph.D. in Astronomy, and prior to that, she earned a B.A. in Physics and Astronomy from the University of California, Berkeley. She currently works on analyzing large cosmological simulations to understand the formation of galaxies in the early universe and the effect these galaxies had on their local environments. Her thesis work was on the contribution of little galaxies to reionization, an epoch in early cosmological history that is still not well understood.
