Andreea Font is a computational astrophysicist at Liverpool John Moores University, where she also lectures on the physics of galaxies, relativity and cosmology. Her primary research interest is on the formation of our own Galaxy, the Milky Way. As a simulator, she builds and tests various models of Milky Way-like galaxies on the computer and tries to decipher the actual formation history of our Galaxy by matching these models with the observations.
