Andrey Kravtsov is a Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Chicago and a member of the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics since 2001.
His research interests span from studies of formation of the smallest dwarf galaxies to the most massive galaxy clusters and he uses numerical simulations and analytical models to study formation of these systems.
His recent research focuses on development of realistic models of dwarf galaxy formation, investigations of physical drivers of star formation and feedback in galaxies and the origin
of their low star formation efficiency, and dynamical origin and observable signatures of caustics in dark matter and shocks in gas in the outskirts of galaxy clusters.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
