Fakhri S. Zahedy, Ph.D

Welcome! I am an observational astronomer interested in galaxy formation and evolution. Since January 2024, I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Physics, University of North Texas. Prior to joining UNT, I spent four years as a Carnegie Postdoctoral Fellow at the Carnegie Observatories in Pasadena, CA. In July 2019, I defended my Ph.D thesis at The University of Chicago, where I carried out observational studies of diffuse gas around distant galaxies with Prof. Hsiao-Wen Chen.
