Hello, my name is Edward Buie II and I am working with Evan Scannapieco on investigating the role of turbulence in galactic halo simulations using the MAIHEM (Models of Agitated and Illuminated Hindering and Emitting Media) code which tracks ionizations, recombinations, and ion-by-ion radiative cooling for many astrophysically relevant elements. I am also interested in improving the mental health of graduate students, but also scientists in general as we tend to overly focus on our work and neglect our minds. I want to normalize and de-stigmatize mental health discussions in science and work to improve the quality of life for scientists.

Research Interests

I am interested in the role of turbulence in the circumgalactic medium around star-forming galaxies and how it influences the ions that exist there.
