Newlin is an astronomy PhD student. He studies gravitational dynamics in star clusters using numerical simulations run on Northwestern’s Quest computing cluster. He focuses on the impact of central black holes on star cluster evolution and methods to infer the presence of black holes in observed clusters based on their influence on surrounding stars. Newlin started working with Professor Rasio as an undergraduate at Northwestern, where he majored in Integrated Science, Physics, and Mechanical Engineering.

Advisor: Fred Rasio
