Biography

Dan’s research interest is on the connection between galaxies and dark matter halos. In particular, he is leading a novel method of determining galaxy positions by explicitly tracking simulation particles (‘core-tracking’). This method does not suffer from the difficulty of identifying substructure or numerical disruption of substructure. He is also heavily involved with the production the main synthetic galaxy catalog for the LSST DESC collaboration.
