Emily Drabek publishes research in Astrophysics

Emily Drabek (Physics'09) is a PhD candidate with the astrophysics group at University of Exeter. Her research is in observational star formation, specifically using the far-infrared and millimetre wavelengths to study the initial conditions of star formation. In December, she went on her second observing trip to the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope at Mauna Kea Observatory in Hawaii, where she was able to take molecular line data for two proposals on which she is currently working. She also was notified recently that the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society has accepted her paper on molecular line contamination in the SCUBA-2 continuum data.
