Center for Astrophysics
ITC Fellow


Ana Bonaca is a Fellow at the Institute for Theory and Computation, hosted by the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian. Her specialty is stellar dynamics and her research aims to uncover the structure and evolution of our galaxy, the Milky Way, especially the dark matter halo that surrounds it. In her research, she uses space- and ground-based telescopes to measure the motions of stars and constructs numerical experiments to discover how dark matter affected them.
