Fabio Pacucci

Fellow; Clay Fellow
Black Hole Initiative


Fabio’s research focuses on “all things black holes,” from local ones to the farthest ever discovered, from the small to the supermassive ones. It includes evidence from theory, observations, and computation to construct a compelling narrative of the evolution of black holes and galaxies throughout cosmic time. His investigation revolves around black hole seeds, high-redshift quasars, formation and evolution of supermassive black holes, their coevolution with host galaxies, intermediate-mass, and wandering black holes. He also has expertise in observations, with successful proposals as PI ranging from radio to X-rays, passing through sub-mm and optical/IR, including a JWST Cycle 2 GO
