Fabio Pacucci

BHI Communications; Former BHI Postdoctoral Fellow
Black Hole Initiative


Fabio Pacucci is a BHI Fellow at Harvard University and a Clay Fellow at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. He received his Ph.D. in 2016 at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, the school of Enrico Fermi. Before coming to the Center for Astrophysics, he was a postdoc at Yale University. Fabio’s research focuses on “all things black holes,” from local ones to the farthest ever discovered, from the small to the super-massive ones. A large part of his research deals with the formation, cosmological evolution, and observational signatures of the first population of black holes formed at redshift higher than 6.
