Bio:

Brianna’s research focuses on the intersection between black hole theory and observation. With many telescopes now pointing at black holes, they will develop more advanced theoretical models to help the astronomical community explain puzzling features seen in black hole observations. They are also interested in transitioning into a career in climate science and advocacy to help combat climate change on the only planet humans can survive on. As far as we know, there is no Planet B.
