Angelo Ricarte

Center for Astrophysics


Angelo Ricarte is fascinated by the multi-scale problems of supermassive black hole formation, growth, and feedback, from event horizon to cosmological scales. On small scales, he studies general relativistic magneto-hydrodynamics (GRMHD) simulations and polarized radiative transfer within the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration. On large scales, he works on cosmological simulations and semi-analytic/empirical models connecting supermassive black hole evolution to their host galaxies, from the seeding epoch to the present day.
