“Two things fill my mind with ever-increasing wonder and awe, the more often and the more intensely the reflection dwells on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me,,

Immanuel Kant

Welcome to my website!

My name is Ilaria Caiazzo and I am an astrophysicist. I am a Burke Prize Fellow at the California Institute of Technology, in Pasadena. I am a theorist, and I am interested in stars, in their lives and in their afterlives. I am interested in stellar evolution and dynamics, in particular in star clusters, and in the remnants of stellar deaths: white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes. In my research page you can find more about my projects.

I am also a writer and movie producer, and if that's why you're here, please check out my production company's website.
