Biography
Alice Quillen focuses on the dynamics of gas and stars in galaxies, the astrophysics of active galactic nuclei, and the dynamics of planetesimals in young planetary systems. She uses observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope to construct models for the emission, growth and evolution of massive black holes and to search for evidence of resonant dynamics caused by planets in dusty debris disks surrounding nearby stars.
