Christoph Federrath is Future Fellow of the Australian Research Council, Stromlo Fellow, and Faculty Member at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics of the Australian National University. He held postdoctoral fellowships at the Monash Centre for Astrophysics in Melbourne, the Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon, and the Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics in Heidelberg. He studied physics at the University of Wuerzburg from 2001 to 2007 and received a Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.) from the University of Heidelberg in 2010. Federrath's research focuses on understanding the formation of stars in the Universe. An essential part of this work is to compare supercomputer simulations performed on thousands of computer cores to real observations in galactic clouds. The ultimate goal of Federrath's research is to establish a model that combines all the relevant physics and chemistry to advance our understanding of how galaxies, stars and planets form in the Universe.
