Dr Sandro Tacchella

Sandro Tacchella is an assistant professor at the Department of Physics (Cavendish Laboratory) and at the Kavli Institute for Cosmology of the University of Cambridge. Before joining the University of Cambridge in 2022, he was Assistant Professor at the Physics Department of UNIST in Ulsan, Korea.

From 2017-2021, he was a CfA Fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, USA. He has received his Ph.D. from ETH Zurich (Switzerland) in 2017. Sandro’s long-range scientific goal is to understand the physics of the formation and evolution of galaxies and black holes across cosmic time. He exploits cutting-edge multi-wavelength observational data obtained with some of the most advanced telescopes on ground and in space.

He uses and develops analytical and cosmological numerical models to shed light on the physical properties of galaxies.
