Chang-Goo Kim, Ph.D.

Flatiron Research Fellow, Galaxy Formation, CCA, Flatiron InstituteChang-Goo Kim, Ph.D.’s Website

Chang-Goo Kim joined the foundation in September 2017 as a Flatiron Research Fellow at the Center for Computational Astrophysics (CCA). His research interests center on the physics of star formation and the interstellar medium, as well as the development, implementation and application of state-of-the-art numerical methods for computational fluid dynamics. He developed a local, galactic-scale simulation suite that self-consistently models the interstellar medium in great details with well-resolved star formation and feedback. A particular emphasis of his research at the CCA is on developing subgrid models for large-scale galaxy formation simulations based on his resolved simulations. Before joining the CCA, Kim was a postdoctoral scholar at Princeton University and a CITA National Fellow at the University of Western Ontario in Canada. Kim obtained his Ph.D. at Seoul National University in Korea.
