Christopher Few

Research Fellow

Biography Gareth Few is a computational astrophysicist whose research interests are the formation and evolution of spiral galaxies.

Specifically, he focuses on the processes which shape galaxies, how different chemical elements are distributed within them, and the various processes that determine where stars form.

Gareth's simulations use some of the world's most powerful supercomputers, without which these sophisticated hydrodynamics models would be impossible.

He is active in science outreach, presenting science talks to schools, science clubs and the public as well as chairing the Beverley Café Scientifique and Hull branch of the British Science Association.
