Welcome to Michael Tremmel's Webpage!

Hello and welcome! I am a current graduate student in the University of Washington Astronomy Department. My research interests include theoretical and computational astrophysics. Specifically, my research involves using cosmological simulations to study the formation and growth of galaxies and supermassive black holes. I am also a teaching assistant for basic undergraduate astronomy courses. Click the links on the right to learn more! Download my CV Here
