Thomas Pfeil, Ph.D.

Flatiron Research Fellow, Planet Formation, CCA, Flatiron Institute

Thomas Pfeil joined the Center for Computational Astrophysics (CCA) as a Flatiron Research Fellow in April, 2024. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Heidelberg University, working in the group of Hubert Klahr at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy. Afterward, Thomas joined Til Birnstiel’s group at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, where he obtained his Ph.D.

Thomas works on numerical models of dust coagulation and hydrodynamic simulations of protoplanetary disks to better understand the early phases of planet formation. He works on new machine-learning-based dust coagulation models and radiation-hydrodynamic simulations of protoplanetary disks.
