Alessia Gualandris: Home page


I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Rochester Institute of Technology working on galactic dynamics.

My research interests include:

  1. Bullet Dynamics of galactic nuclei with massive black holes, implications of gravitational radiation recoil.

  2. Bullet Dynamics of the Milky Way’s center, ejection of hypervelocity stars, origin of the young stars orbiting the supermassive black hole.

  3. Bullet Formation and observational signatures of intermediate mass black holes.

  4. Bullet  Implementation and performance of N-body codes for the simulation of dense stellar systems on parallel computers and special purpose hardware (GRAPEs, GPUs).
