About Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz's Work
I am a theoretical astrophysicist who is developing the conceptual framework needed to understand the violent and capricious nature of the Universe. I use computer simulations to explore transient phenomena such as collisions, mergers, and disruptions of stars – especially those involving compact objects like black holes, neutron stars, and white dwarfs.
