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 public science outreach & communication. He was the host of the science radio talk show, Enter Galactic, for three years for WRUW-FM 91.1 Cleveland, and has continued to produce science content for YouTube, as well as giving many public lectures in astronomy across New York City.
