Aleksandra Kuznetsova, Ph.D.

Flatiron Research Fellow, Exoplanets, CCA, Flatiron Institute

Aleksandra Kuznetsova joined the Flatiron Institute’s Center for Computational Astrophysics (CCA) as a Flatiron Research Fellow in September 2023. Her work focuses on understanding how star formation processes influence the properties of planetary systems, such as our own solar system. With the use of a combination of hydrodynamic, chemical and radiative transfer calculations, she aims to make testable predictions of star and planet formation theory. Kuznetosova received a B.S. in physics and astronomy and a B.A. in geological sciences from the University of Rochester. She earned her Ph.D. in astrophysics from the University of Michigan in 2020. Before joining the CCA, she was an NHFP Sagan Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History.
