Sara Rastello

I am a Post-Doc in the DEMOBLACK research group since February 2019. I studied in Bologna, where I got my bachelor (Astronomy) and master degree (Astrophysics and Cosmology). In 2015, I obtained a joint PhD fellowship from University of Rome “La Sapienza”, University of Rome “Tor Vergata” and INAF. During my PhD, under the supervisions of Roberto Capuzzo – Dolcetta, I studied the dynamics of star clusters over a broad range of mass and spatial scales and I became a skilled user of numerical codes such as NBODY6, NBODY7 and NBODY6++GPU. In 2017, I was awarded a PhD grant from “La Sapienza” University of Rome for my proposal entitled “Black Holes and Star Clusters over mass and Spatial Scales”. My main research field is galactic dynamics, with a focus on the dynamics of binary stars, black hole binaries, and other compact object binaries in star clusters.
