I am the George Ellery Hale Distibuished Scholar in Theoretical Astrophysics at the Observatories of the Carnegie Institution of Washington: http://users.obs.carnegiescience.edu/abenson/

My research program centers around the process of galaxy formation, with a particular emphasis on formulating a coherent picture of the many different aspects of this problem. Currently, I am developing a new model of galaxy formation, Galacticus, which is now available to the community as an open source project. The approach blends both analytic understanding and significant number-crunching utilizing distributed resources such as Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud.
