Ameila Mangian is a first year graduate student in the Department of Astronomy.  She came to UIUC after completing a Bachelor of Arts in Physics from Lawrence University in 2018.  Amelia spent two summers conducting research in Astrophysics at Lawrence University and UCLA during her time in undergrad.  She ran simulations of the evolution of protoplanetary disks in binary systems under Prof. Megan Pickett and studied the S-star cluster and SgrA* in the galactic center under Prof. Andrea Ghez.  Amelia's current research interests include how galaxies form and evolve in the presence of Supermassive Black Holes and how early galaxies formed after the Big Bang.  She will be working with Joaquin Vieira studying dusty star forming galaxies.
