Research Description

I serve as a Research Assistant (RA) for JILA under Dr. Ann-Marie Madigan studying N-body dynamics of stars around supermassive black holes. More specifically, I am currently working on the formation and evolution of eccentric nuclear disks (ENDs) from the gravitational wave recoil kick of a supermassive black hole merger.
