Rachael Ainsworth: The Violent Birth of Stars

Rachael Ainsworth is a Research Associate at the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics at the University of Manchester. In her DotTalk at bluedot 2019, she presents observations of newborn systems from next generation radio telescopes, which peer through the dust of these stellar nurseries to learn more about violent jet processes, and what we hope to learn from the Square Kilometre Array – a global science and engineering project to build the world’s largest radio telescope.

She is an expert in the interpretation of radio emission from protostellar systems in nearby star forming regions, her research involves observing jets from young stars with next-generation radio telescopes to investigate the physical processes that assemble stars like our Sun.
