Mike McCourt


I’m a Hubble and KITP fellow at UC Santa Barbara. Before that, I was an ITC Fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and a grad student in the astronomy department at UC Berkeley. For my thesis, I worked with Professor Eliot Quataert, studying the intracluster medium of galaxy clusters.

I did my undergraduate studies at Stanford University, where I majored in physics with a concentration in theoretical physics. My research there focused on modeling gravitational lensing by galaxy clusters.

I was born in Seattle, Washington and grew up in Santa Monica, California. When not in my office, I enjoy hiking, skiing, woodworking, growing tomatoes, traveling, and photography, among other things.

Feel free to stop by my desk or otherwise contact me via your preferred method.
