Monica Valluri

Research Professor, Astronomy

Monica Valluri is an Associate Research Professor at the U-M Department of Astronomy. She studies galactic dynamics, including accurately measuring the masses of supermassive black holes in galaxies; non-linear dynamical processes involved in sculpting galaxies; the properties of “dark matter”; understanding the dynamical structure of the Milky Way Galaxy; predicting the observable properties of dark matter and the detectability of “dark stars”; and inferring the dynamical effects of cluster environments on spiral galaxies from the distributions of their atomic hydrogen gas and stars.
