Brief description This project aims to determine the physics behind outflows and inflows at the peak epoch of star-formation in the Universe's history. Surrounding gas is accreted into galaxies along filaments, which fuels the formation of stars. Determining the physics of galaxy flows is key to challenging galaxy evolution models, because they shape the galaxy's morphology, growth and chemical make-up. The project goals are to discover how galaxies are built and evolve by observing and simulating gas flows during their peak of activity.
