Mrs. Katsioli Stavroula received a scholarship from the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (H.F.R.I.)
The Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing (I.A.A.S.A.R.S.) is pleased to announce that Mrs. Katsioli Stavroula, PhD candidate at the Physics Department of the University of Athens, under the supervision of Dr. Xilouris Manolis (I.A.A.S.A.R.S.), received a scholarship from the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (H.F.R.I.) in order to complete her dissertation with a title “A study of the properties of the cold dust in nearby galaxies through observations at
millimeter wavelengths”. From the 3rd call for H.F.R.I. scholarships to PhD candidates, a total of 50 dissertations at the field of physical sciences was chosen to be funded among 228 applications. In particular, only 3 out of these 50 eligible dissertations belonged to the fields of astrophysics and cosmology.
Observations at millimeter wavelengths (1.15 and 2 mm) of the NGC0891 galaxy received by the IRAM 30-m radiotelescope and the NIKA2 detector in Granada, Spain.
The main subject of her PhD dissertation is the study of the cold dust properties in nearby galaxies through observation at millimeter wavelengths. The observations are conducted using the IRAM 30-m radiotelescope and the NIKA2 detector within the framework of a large scientific program, IMEGIN (Interpreting the Millimetre Emission in Nearby Galaxies). The dissertation aims at investigating the properties of the interstellar dust in spatial scales in nearby galaxies, as well as the different emission mechanisms which contribute at millimeter wavelengths.
