Black Holes and Revelations - From the Interstellar Medium to Supermassive Black Holes

We welcome back Andrealuna for our next meeting!
In the talk she will start from our planet and go through all the processes which, from a cold cloud of gas, bring about formations of stars and black holes.


Andrealuna Pizzetti 

Pizzetti earned her undergraduate degree at the University of Bologna. She decided to pursue a doctorate at Clemson after seeing a flyer for the University on a bulletin board and contacting Marco Ajello, an associate professor in the Clemson Department of Physics and Astronomy. Ajello is now her adviser.

For Pizzetti, who had a lifelong dream of becoming an astronomer, pursuing an astrophysics doctorate seemed natural.  

Also, we will vote to confirm our board for the upcoming year. The ballot is unchanged from our current board:

David Quattlebaum
Vice President: Scott Stevens
Treasurer: Casey Amarek
Secretary: Bill Linton
At Large Members:
Sam Horton
Mark Stanford
Dave Hoyt
