Claude-André Faucher-Giguère is a faculty member in physics & astronomy at Northwestern University and collaborates with the CPAC group at Argonne. 

Faucher-Giguère has broad interests in theoretical astrophysics and cosmology, with particular emphasis on galaxy formation and evolution. Faucher-Giguère’s research focuses on understanding the multi-scale physical processes that govern galaxy formation in the cosmological context, including star formation, galaxy-black hole co-evolution, galactic dynamics, and connections with the intergalactic medium and cosmology. He uses a multi-pronged approach including: large-scale numerical simulations, analytic modeling, and comparisons with observational data.
