Charles Steinhardt is an associate professor of Cosmology and Extragalactic Astrophysics at the Niels Bohr Institute [1]. He is best known for his research on understanding the cosmic origin and evolution of galaxies, with other research topics including quasars, astrostatistics and machine learning. He is a founding member of the Cosmic Dawn Center [2]

Early education[edit]

Charles Steinhardt was educated in the United States, earning his bachelor of arts in Astrophysical Sciences in 2003 from Princeton University and masters degrees in Astronomy in 2005 and Computer Science in 2010 along with a Ph.D. in 2010 from Harvard University. His thesis was titled “The Quasar Mass-Luminosity Plane”[3][4][5], under the supervision of Martin Elvis.

Scientific career[edit]

Steinhardt is best known for his work on the evolution of early galaxies, and particularly for his role in the development of the consensus view of the star-forming “main sequence” [6]. He has argued that the main sequence, along with similar properties of quasars [7], indicate that all galaxies may evolve along similar paths [8][9]. His work with the first galaxies indicates that massive galaxies appear to exist before they have had time to assemble under standard cosmology [10], a claim which has proven controversial [11]. He is also co-PI of the BUFFALO [12] [13] Hubble Space Telescope survey. [14] [15]

Steinhardts work outside of galaxy evolution spans several areas of astronomy, including studies of gamma-ray bursts [16], astrostatistics [17], and cosmology [18]

Steinhardt spent three years at the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe [19] and three years at the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center and Caltech working for Peter Capak following receipt of his Ph.D. in 2010. The asteroid 201751 Steinhardt is named after him. [20]

Since his arrival at University of Copenhagen, Steinhardt has taught the course Cosmology, formerly known as Astro III, along with Cosmic Dawn Center center director Sune Toft.
