"I study the smallest galaxies we know about...These galaxies are interesting because they are part of our cosmic story. The first galaxies to form were small ones, and over time they got smashed together to build up bigger ones."
Cynthia Eller
Xie Chen comes to Caltech after a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at UC Berkeley. Originally from China, Chen received her BS from Tsinghua University in Beijing and her PhD from MIT. She recently discussed with us her research interests and ambitions for her Caltech career.

Christian Ott, professor of theoretical astrophysics at Caltech, formulates scenarios for what happens when massive stars collapse.
Kimm Fesenmaier
"I work in this area called mathematical physics. It involves taking things that we see and observe in nature and trying to explain them mathematically from first principles."
Jessica Stoller-Conrad
"I work on a broad range of topics, but basically I like studying how big things form. I study how galaxies form, how stars form, and how supermassive black holes form. Recently, I started studying how planets form"
