Current Graduate Students


Andrea Antoni

Research Interests

I am interested in the hydrodynamics of late-stage stellar evolution as well as the assembly of close binary systems.  Currently, I am studying convection in the context of failed supernovae. 


I am a second-year graduate student in astronomy.  I earned a B.S. in Physics (Astrophysics) with Highest Honors from the University of California, Santa Cruz in August 2018 where I was a Regents Scholar and a 2017 Barry Goldwater Scholar.  At UCSC, I worked with Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz and Morgan MacLeod studying the common envelope phase in the formation of close binaries as well as the general problem of binaries embedded in gases. Before UCSC, I graduated from West Valley College in May 2015 with associates degrees in Mathematics and Physics.    You can find me at desk 461C.
