Anastasiya Yilmaz

PH.D. STUDENT, ASTROPHYSICIST

Hi! I am a Ph.D. student in astrophysics at Charles University in Prague, Czech republic. I study accretion disks around black holes in X-ray binary systems and how these accretion disks evolve to better understand relativistic processes taking place in such strong gravitational fields around black holes. I previously studied the evolution of galaxy clusters and effects of AGN activity on ICM and accretion phenomena in X-ray binaries with a special focus on Ultraluminous X-ray sources.
