I'm Merry Powell, and I am a Porat Postdoctoral Fellow at the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology (KIPAC) at Stanford University. I research the growth of supermassive black holes and how they co-evolve with the galaxies and dark matter halos that host them. I recently received my PhD in Physics from Yale University.

Beyond astrophysics, I enjoy playing piano, playing viola in orchestras and chamber groups, and skiing.
