Nora Shipp is a near-field cosmologist and Galactic dynamicist who uses observations and simulations of the Milky Way to understand dark matter and galaxy formation physics. She uses large astronomical surveys like the Dark Energy Survey, Gaia, and soon the Rubin Observatory LSST, along with cosmological and idealized simulations, to study the population of Milky Way satellite galaxies and star clusters across the spectrum of tidal disruption.
