Visit by Haley Gomez

Haley Gomez is visiting DARK from 1-4 April 2013. She is here to collaborate with Anja Andersen and Darach Watson and to give a seminar.

Haley is currently a Lecturer at Cardiff University. Her main research focus is to understand the formation and evolution of cosmic dust, particularly where it is formed. Cosmic dust is a nuisance to astronomers as it blocks out optical light, affecting our view of the Universe. It is also very important as dust affects star formation, stellar mass loss rates, the formation of molecular hydrogen and planets.
