Hello! I am Zack Andalman, Princeton astrophysics Ph.D. class of 2028 and Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow (DOE CSGF). I use simulations to understand the physics of transients, a class of astrophysical phenomena which change brightness over human timescales (< years) such as supernovae, gamma ray bursts, and compact object mergers. These energetic events often produce multi-messenger signals i.e. electromagnetic radiation, gravitational radiation, cosmic rays. My research projects include tidal disruption events, thin disk accretion, kilonovae, and star formation in low metallicity environments.
