Vick, Michelle

Postdoctoral Fellow


Dr. Michelle Vick is a postdoctoral fellow at CIERA. She studies tidal physics in a broad range of astrophysical systems. Her interests range from coalescing neutron stars to pre-common envelope binaries to giant planets orbiting their host stars. Michelle uses a combination of analytic techniques and numerical simulations to determine how tidal dissipation affects the orbital evolution of these systems and the structure of their components.
