Dr Robert Mostoghiu Paun

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Dark Matter Simulations
PhD, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain; MSc, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid , Spain; BSc, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid , Spain


Robert Adriel Mostoghiu Paun is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Swinburne’s Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing. His research focuses on the use of cosmological simulations to understand the formation and evolution of galaxies at different scales.

Dr Robert is interested in the role that the environments of clusters of galaxies play in shaping the evolution of galaxies, how they correlate with the diversity of galaxies as found in observations, and how mock catalogues and constrained simulations can aid us in bridging simulations with observations.

Dr Robert currently aims to develop a new generation of simulations of Milky-Way galaxies that explore a range of dark matter candidates to support and inform the ongoing experimental dark matter detection efforts.
