The Galactic center is the closest example we have of the environment of a supermassive black hole and to study how stars and gas interact with it. Dr. Ciurlo will present an overview of our Galaxy from the Solar System to the very center where she will focus on the environment of the supermassive black hole.
Dr. Ciurlo is a Postdoctoral Scholar at UCLA in the Galactic Center Group and a Keck Visiting Scholar. She earned her PhD in astrophysics at the Paris Observatory. She is interested in the complex environment of the center of our Galaxy, especially in its effects on gas clouds and clumps. She has studied gas physical and dynamical conditions through imaging-spectroscopy data.
