I'm Merry Powell, and I am a 5th-year PhD Candidate at Yale University. I work on the growth of supermassive black holes and how they co-evolve with the galaxies and dark matter halos that host them. I received my bachelor's degree in Physics from University of California, Davis, with a minor in music.

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