Rubens Machado

As of March 2015: I am currently a post-doctoral researcher at UNAB (Santiago, Chile) working in collaboration with Prof. Patricia Tissera. In my current research project, I study the chemical enrichment of the circumgalactic medium in cosmological simulations of galaxy formation.

Previously, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the Departamento de Astronomia, IAG, Universidade de São Paulo. My research focuses on extragalactic astrophysics and my interests include galactic dynamics, barred galaxies, galaxy clusters, dark matter, cosmology and computational simulations. I investigate collisions of galaxy clusters, in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Gastão Lima Neto, performing numerical simulations with the Alphacrucis supercomputing cluster at IAG.
