Mario Klaric

Dr. Mario Klaric's interests are in galaxy interactions, galaxy morphology, and astrophysical processes such as bar formation and star formation. He has worked on developing computer models of various galaxies. In his thesis work and a subsequent paper, Dr. Klaric demonstrated via computer models that stellar bars could be formed through internal disk processes.

Dr. Klaric received his Ph.D. in 1993 from the University of Alabama, under the guidance of Dr. Gene Byrd. He grew up in Yugoslavia, where he lived through 1986. He resides in Columbia, South Carolina, where he teaches astronomy and physics, and continues his research.
