Nicole Lloyd-Ronning is an astrophysicist in the Computational Physics and Methods group at Los Alamos National Lab, and teaches physics and astronomy at the University of New Mexico, Los Alamos. She studies the physics behind the bright, explosive deaths of very massive stars (and the black holes they create), and uses these explosions as tools to learn about star formation in our universe. She also participates in a number of outreach programs in our Northern NM community and beyond. She grew up all over the U.S. and Germany, moving about every two years, and graduated high school in Honolulu, Hawaii. She received her B.A. in physics from Cornell University and her Ph.D. in physics from Stanford University, and has been living in and loving New Mexico since 2003.
