Astrophiz 154: Dr Emily Moravec – Active Galaxies in Galaxy Clusters

Credit: Astrophiz.


Emily is a postdoctoral fellow at Green Bank Observatory.

She is an AGN researcher who works on active galactic nuclei, radio galaxies, galaxy clusters, and radio interferometry.

She is active in a number of radio AGN and cluster collaborations and does wonderful outreach work supporting early career astronomers.

For her PhD at the University of Florida, Emily researched Radio Galaxies in Massive Galaxy Clusters up to 10 billion light years away at redshift 1, then her first post-doc was in the Czech Republic where she worked at the Astronomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague, and was also an ALMA Support Scientist working with the Czech ARC Node.

Now Emily is back in the States up in West Virginia where she works at the famous 100m Green Bank Observatory, the world’s largest fully steerable radio telescope.

Dr Moravec’s research, outreach and insights into science policy through her work with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine make this episode a great listen.
