Monica Gallegos-Garcia works with Prof. Vicky Kalogera to understand the formation of merging compact objects. She uses detailed MESA simulations to study stellar and binary evolution and is part of the POSYDON collaboration. She is interested in developing improved models for binary evolution and using observational clues from gravitational wave and electromagnetic sources to advance our understanding of the underlying mechanisms that lead to merging compact objects.
