Matteo Cantiello, Ph.D.

Associate Research Scientist, CCA, Flatiron Institute

Matteo Cantiello joined the foundation in 2017 as associate research scientist at the Center for Computational Astrophysics. His work focuses on the life and death of single and binary stars. He uses a variety of computational and observational tools, including 1D stellar evolution, 3D magneto-hydrodynamics calculations of stellar interiors, the study and observation of wave propagation inside stars (asteroseismology), the observations of stellar populations, stellar explosions and the gravitational wave emission from the mergers of compact stellar remnants.
Prior to joining the foundation, Cantiello was a specialist in astrophysics at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and an Argelander Fellow at Bonn University. He holds a Ph.D. in theoretical astrophysics from Utrecht University, and a M.Sc. in theoretical physics from the University of Pisa.
