Daegene Koh receives the EAPSI Fellowship!

Graduate student Daegene Koh has received the EAPSI (East Asian and Pacific Summer Institutes) Fellowship for Summer 2014. Congratulations! He will be working in Chosun University in Korea with Prof. Kyung-jin Ahn. They will be investigating the contribution from the first stars and galaxies to the cosmic near-infrared background, using massively parallel radiative transfer simulations. The product of this research will secure additional observational constraints on the nature of galaxy formation during the first billion years of the Universe, probing the faintest galaxies that are otherwise individually undetectable with current facilities. However, their cumulative luminosity may leave an imprint in the cosmic near-infrared background, which can be disentangled from galaxies that form closer to home, when utilizing theoretical models of galaxy formation.
