Brian O'Shea is a computational astrophysicist whose work focuses on cosmological structure formation and fluid dynamics - specifically, the formation and evolution of galaxies in a variety of environments and over the age of the universe, and the properties of hot, diffuse plasmas in the intergalactic and intracluster medium. He is a co-author of the open-source Enzo adaptive mesh code, an expert in high performance computing, and an advocate for open-source computing and open-source science. Prior to arriving at Michigan State, he received his PhD in physics from the University of Illinois and was a Director's Postdoctoral Fellow at Los Alamos National laboratory.
