My name is Stefano Meschiari. I am a W. J. McDonald Postdoctoral astronomer at the University of Texas at Austin. Previously, I was a graduate student at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Before still, I was an undergraduate at the University of Bologna (Italy).
I am interested in simulating the evolution of protoplanetary disks, the characterization of extrasolar planets, citizen science-driven projects and hydrodynamical and N-body codes. My academic advisor, Greg Laughlin, and I have collaborated on several such projects. I also maintain the Systemic Console, an application for discovering extrasolar planets, which is used both for outreach and to find and publish new planetary systems.
