Sarah Jeffreson

Center for Astrophysics
ITC Fellow


Sarah is an ITC Fellow working at the Institute for Theory and Computation at the Center for Astrophysics, Harvard & Smithsonian. She received her PhD from the University of Heidelberg in November 2020. The over-arching goal of her research is to understand the cycle of star formation across the wide variety of galactic environments in our Universe. To this end, Sarah uses a combination of analytic theory and numerical simulations to study the connection between the large-scale properties of galaxies and the evolution of the molecular gas reservoirs in which stars form.
