Hey, I'm Maria Paola Vaccaro

You can call me Paola for short 😉

I'm an astrophysicist and I'm interested in stars, stellar evolution, stellar remnants, compact objects... You name it! Currently I'm working in the field of gravitational-wave astronomy and black hole dynamics, but I'm always open to learn more.

I'm a PhD candidate at the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics (ITA/ZAH), Heidelberg University.
I work with Michela Mapelli in the DEMOBLACK group.
