Astroquizzical – Jillian Scudder

a photograph of Dr Jillian ScudderDr. Jillian M. Scudder is a postdoctoral Research Fellow in Extragalactic Astrophysics at the University of Sussex, in Brighton, UK.

Her thesis focused on the physics of galaxy collisions in the local universe (through both optical and radio observations), and she has now expanded her work to more distant galaxies and a broader spectrum of wavelengths.

She is very interested in science communication and outreach, and has created her own blog in order to answer questions about space: Astroquizzical. If youve got a burning question about life, the universe and everything (but mostly the universe), head down to Take Nobodys Word For It on Sunday 18th September.
