Hi there, welcome to my website! My name is Camila Correa, I am a postdoctoral researcher at Leiden University in the Netherlands, working with Joop Schaye and his team. I focus in theoretical astrophysics, I analyse large cosmological simulations, such as the EAGLE simulation series, to understand the formation and evolution of galaxies.

I did my PhD at the University of Melbourne in Australia under the supervision of Stuart Wyithe and Alan Duffy. During my PhD I focused on structure formation. I explored the physics that drives the universal accretion history of dark matter halos, and investigated the relation between the halos accretion history and the halos internal structure, using cosmological simulations as well as analytical calculations.

In this website you can learn about my research. You can also visit my blog and see my posts on marathon training or about my travels. In case of questions or comments do not hesitate to contact me.
