Along with collaborators, Avery Broderick at the Perimeter Institute and Christoph Pfrommer at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Science, Dr. Chang has suggested that TeV blazars are a powerful and previously unknown source of heating for the universe. This heating has profound implications for the thermodynamic history of the universe and the formation of galaxies.
Philip Chang arrived at UW-Milwaukee in 2011 and is active in a wide area of theoretical astrophysics including neutron stars, supernova, planets, plasmas, galaxies and cosmology.
