Angelo Ricarte is a theorist interested in the formation and evolution of supermassive black holes.  He has performed research on the Event Horizon Telescope and tidal disruption events by a massive black hole binary.  Nowadays, he works on semi-analytic models of black hole growth from the “seeding” epoch to today.

Angelo is a California native who absolutely abhors the New England winter.  He grew up in La Mirada, a suburb of Los Angeles, and then completed his undergraduate education at UC Berkeley.
