Chris Carr is a fifth-year graduate student at Columbia University. Before arriving at Columbia in the fall of 2019, Chris received his B.A. in physics & astronomy at Case Western Reserve University. As an undergraduate at Case Western, his research on nearby dwarf galaxies, combined with his senior thesis in the realm of dark matter theory earned him the James C. Wyant Award for Research in Physics. His thesis research now tries to incorporate analytical models, simulations, and observations to understand the interaction between the Milky Way's circumgalactic medium and its surrounding satellites. This focus was sparked from past projects using high-resolution simulations to model the response of the Milky Way to the on-going interaction with the dwarf galaxy Sagittarius, as well as analytical modeling on the effectiveness of galactic winds to regulate star formation in low-mass galaxies. Outside of research, Chris is a committed advocate for science literacy, and exploring novel mediums for science communication. For three years, he was the host of the science radio talk show, Enter Galactic, for WRUW-FM 91.1 Cleveland. Since coming to New York City, he has produced astronomy content for Weekly Space Hangout on Youtube, and is a host & producer for Astronomy On Tap NYC. He is also deeply fascinated in exploring the contact discontinuity where art & science collide, and since March, Chris has been a participating scientist in the Microcosms program at the American Museum of Natural History, which brings scientists & artists together to co-create new ways of translating astrophysical concepts to the stage.
