Research

Prof. Amiel Sternberg is a theoretical astrophysicist working in the fields of galaxy evolution, star formation, cosmic structure, black holes and active galaxies, intergalactic and interstellar medium, astrochemistry and plasma astrophysics, dynamics, spectroscopy and radiative transfer, computational and analytic methods and theory of fundamental processes. 

 

Recent research achievements include: development of analytic and hydrodynamic plasma models for the multiphased structures of the circumgalactic medium around galaxies; fundamental theory for the atomic to molecular transition in star-forming interstellar gas clouds; computation of the chemical and thermal phase properties of the neutral interstellar medium in the first galaxies in the young Universe;  analysis and observations of galaxy rotation curves and dark matter properties at the peak epoch of cosmic star-formation; simulations of Lyman alpha emitting cosmic filaments in cosmological hydrodynamics; numerical hydrodynamic modeling of evolving supernova shells.
