JSPS Fellow (Carnegie Observatories)

About Rieko MOMOSE

I am an Astronomer and currently a postdoc researcher at Carnegie Observatories. My primarily interest is in the galaxy formation and evolution across cosmic time. I am also interested in how different galaxy populations link each other. Particularly, I try to unveil these questions in terms of the gas cycle in and around galaxies. I have studied the interstellar, circumngalactic and intergalactic medium (ISM, CGM and IGM) based on observational data. I also investigated it with numerical simulations. I present my research in detail below. I also do a number of outreach activities, giving talks in stargazing and public lectures.

What's NEW! Our latest results was press released from the University of Tokyo (Sorry only in Japanese).
