Greg Snyder Picture

Dr. Greg Snyder is an Archive Scientist with the Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes (MAST). Dr. Snyder's research focuses on determining how galaxies formed and evolved. By combining numerical simulations with HST survey data, Dr. Snyder investigates how galaxies assembled in the early universe and which physics matter to their evolution. He has worked on illustrating how future missions and concepts, such as JWST, the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope, and LUVOIR would propel our understanding of galaxy astrophysics. He is a member of several collaborations working to get the most out of observed datasets by integrating them with ambitious numerical simulations, and he is a member of the AAS.
