Supernovae (SNe) driven winds are widely thought to be very influential in the high-redshift Universe, shaping the properties of the circum-galactic medium, enriching the intergalactic medium (IGM) with metals and driving the evolution of low-mass galaxies. However, it is not yet fully understood how SNe driven winds interact with their surroundings in a cosmological context, nor is it clear whether they are able to significantly impact the evolution of low-mass galaxies from which they… Expand
How supernova explosions power galactic winds
Feedback from supernovae is an essential aspect of galaxy formation. In order to improve subgrid models of feedback, we perform a series of numerical experiments to investigate how supernovaExpand
Erratum: Towards simulating star formation in turbulent high-z galaxies with mechanical supernova feedback
Feedback from supernovae is essential to understanding the self-regulation of star formation in galaxies. However, the efficacy of the process in a cosmological context remains unclear due toExpand
Galactic winds – how to launch galactic outflows in typical Lyman-break galaxies
We perform hydrodynamical simulations of a young galactic disc embedded in a hot gaseous halo using parameters typical for Lyman break galaxies (LBGs). We take into account the (static) gravitationalExpand
The Impact of ISM Turbulence, Clustered Star Formation and Feedback on Galaxy Mass Assembly through Cold Flows and Mergers
Abstract Two of the dominant channels for galaxy mass assembly are cold flows (cold gas supplied via the filaments of the cosmic web) and mergers. How these processes combine in a cosmologicalExpand

Simulating supernova feedback in galaxy disks
In this thesis I examine supernova feedback in hydrodynamical simulations of galaxy disks. Understanding this process entails the numerical evaluation of cooling in radiative shocks, and we present aExpand
