Dr. Goni Halevi uses computational tools to model short-lived, energetic phenomena powered by the formation and mergers of stellar remnants. She performs relativistic magnetohydrodynamic simulations of accretion disks and the jets they launch, with an emphasis on building end-to-end models instead of relying on idealized initial conditions. One of her main scientific interests is clarifying the astrophysical formation sites of heavy nuclei through the r-process nucleosynthesis channel. Goni is a CIERA postdoctoral fellow collaborating with Sasha Tchekovskoy.
