Angelo Ricarte

Black Hole Initiative


Angelo Ricarte is a Filipino-American astrophysicist interested in the connection between supermassive black holes and their host galaxies–from the event horizon to cosmological scales. He completed his undergraduate education at the University of California at Berkeley in 2013 and his Ph.D. at Yale University in 2019. Angelo is part of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration and models the polarized radiative transport behind images of EHT targets M87* and Sgr A*. On cosmological scales, Angelo studies the black hole-galaxy connection using cosmological simulations and semi-analytic/empirical models. His larger-scale interests include black hole seeding, gravitational waves, cosmic backgrounds, and wandering supermassive black holes.
