Dr. Suvi Gezari is an Assistant Professor whose research focus is on time domain astrophysics. She uses the Pan-STARRS1 (PS1) Survey at optical wavelengths and the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) Time Domain Survey at ultraviolet wavelengths, together with follow-up space-based and ground-based observations from across the electromagnetic spectrum, to discover and characterize transients and study their physical properties. Her transients of interest include variable active galactic nuclei, core-collapse supernova explosions of massive stars, and flares from the tidal disruption of stars by supermassive black holes. In May 2015, she was awarded the NSF CAREER award for her proposal, "Probing the the Demographics of Supermassive Black Holes with Time-Domain Observations of Tidal Disruption Events." Here is a link to her publications on ADS.
