Melanie Habouzit joined the foundation in October 2016 as a Flatiron research fellow in the Center for Computational Astrophysics after completing her Ph.D. at the Institut d’Astrophysique de Paris. Her research interests lie in the field of galaxy formation and evolution, with a particular focus on supermassive black holes that reside at the center of galaxies. Habouzit implements, runs and analyzes large-scale cosmological hydrodynamical simulations to study the evolution of black holes and their host galaxies and to make theoretical predictions on the number of observable black holes in the universe.
