Physics and Astronomy A. E. Acosta

Allison E. Acosta

I am a PhD student in Physics and Astronomy working with Dr. Vivienne Baldassare.

My interests include but are not limited to extragalactic research, stellar spectroscopy, and exoplanet discovery. My current research project focuses on using tidal disruption events to weigh black holes using the resulting light curves from tidally disrupted stars.

I graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with a Bachelors of Science in Astronomy and Astrophysics in 2020. During my undergraduate years, I actively participated in stellar spectroscopy research, particularly focusing on the chemical composition of Sirius A.
