Jackie Villadsen, a Jansky Fellow at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, will present a lecture at 11 a.m. on Thursday, September 14, 2017, in the Greenewalt Auditorium as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Villadsen received her Ph.D. in astrophysics at California Institute of Technology in 2016. She uses radio spectroscopy of stellar flares to search for extrasolar space weather events such as coronal mass ejections and stellar aurorae.  She uses the VLA and VLBA and has worked on a team developing the Starburst Project, a stellar radio burst spectroscopy facility at the Owens Valley Radio Observatory.

Coffee, tea, and a light breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.
