Originally from Wisconsin, Dr. Friedman attended the University of Chicago for his undergraduate degrees where he worked in the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics with Andrey Kravtsov by creating computional models of galactic cannibalism with the Sagittarius dwarf spheroidal galaxy and the Milky Way. For graduate school, he attended the Astronomy Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, first working for Linda Sparke working on local group galaxy dynamics, and then for Sebastian Heinz working on heating mechanisms of shock waves interacting with bubbles as it relates to AGN Feedback and the intergalactic medium (IGM). He next worked as a Systems Programmer on the HTCondor project in the Center for High Throughput Computing in the Computer Sciences Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
