The formation and evolutionary history of galaxies are imprinted in the elemental abundance ratios of stars. I am simulating the chemodynamical evolution of galaxies using my hydrodynamical code that includes star formation and chemical enrichment from core-collapse and Type Ia supernovae, and AGB stars. It is possible to predict the time/redshift evolution of the spatial distribution of elements in the Universe and to compare with observations of nearby and distant galaxies. In this talk, I will discuss the mass-metallicity relation of galaxies, the stellar populations of the Galactic bulge and disk, and the elemental abundances of metal-poor Damped Lyman alpha systems.
