Dominic Ludovici received his BS in Physics from West Virgina University in 2011 and his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Iowa in 2017. During his time as a graduate student, he worked with Professors Cornelia Lang and Robert Mutel in two primary areas: 1) Studying non-thermal sources and molecular clouds in the Galactic Center and 2) developing instrumentation for university class optical telescopes. Dominic joined the Department of Physics and Optical Engineering at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in the summer of 2017. At Rose-Hulman, he continues to pursue his interests in using small telescope systems to enable student learning and astronomical research. He also remains active in studying the galactic center, and is currently examining unresolved radio sources in this exciting region of the Galaxy.
