Welcome to the 32nd episode of the Urban Astronomer Podcast. This episode features an interview with Dr Nicole Gugliucci, whom long time listeners of astronomy podcasts should recognise from her work with Cosmoquest, and her many appearances on various shows in the 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast.
This is quite a long-running interview, so we didn’t have time to include the next segment of our supernova story. We’ll pick that up next week instead, with the thrilling tale of what happens when a massive star leaves the main sequence and starts the next stage of its life cycle.
Dr Gugliucci currently works as an assistant professor of physics at Anselm College in New Hampshire, USA. In the interview, we talk about science outreach and education, and her time spent in South Africa, where she helped build the PAPER array as part of her PhD research.
