Thomas Matthew Jackson, M.Sc.
My PhD research is on Local galaxies, their properties, their environments and their assembly history. I am comparing data from the Subaru Hyper Suprime Cam to simulations such as Illustris, as well as employing IFU data. I also have interests in local Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) from my masters degree. This involved hard X-ray selected AGN from the Swift-BAT survey and using SED fitting to compare their host galaxy properties to the EAGLE hydrodynamical simulations. Further research is on how AGN feedback within EAGLE can affect star formation in host galaxies and the morphologies and environments of AGN within EAGLE.
