How astrophysicists use code to simulate the Universe | In conversation with Dr. Ricarda Beckmann

As part of my "How I use code as an astrophysicist" video, I chatted with Dr. Ricarda Beckmann about how she uses code in her work simulating the growth of black holes. This is the extended, unedited version of that chat - enjoy!

For more information on Ricarda's work see her website:

????????‍???? I'm Dr. Becky Smethurst, an astrophysicist at the University of Oxford. I love making videos about science with an unnatural level of enthusiasm. I like to focus on how we know things, not just what we know. And especially, the things we still don't know. If you've ever wondered about something in space and couldn't find an answer online - you can ask me! My day job is to do research into how supermassive black holes can affect the galaxies that they live in. In particular, I look at whether the energy output from the disk of material orbiting around a growing supermassive black hole can stop a galaxy from forming stars.
