The Life Cycle of a Massive Star

Guest Speaker

Thursday, 25th May 2017 (19:45 - 22:00)

Venue: Meeting Room, Swinton Bottom Club (Formerly Swinton WMC)

For my talk I would like to speak about the life cycle of a massive star, explaining the key evolutionary stages from birth to supernovae, and how this journey differs from low mass stars.

Speaker: Katie Tehrani

Our speaker tonight is Katie Tehrani and she is a second year PhD student in the astronomy department at the University of Sheffield. I’m an observational astronomer and study massive stars that are found outside of the Milky Way. 

Katie began studying astronomy in 2011 when she started her undergraduate degree at the University of Sheffield - She was lucky enough to be able to continue studying here as a postgraduate PhD student! Katie is a  keen traveller, and through her studies recently had the opportunity to visit New Zealand to attend a massive stars conference. Other hobbies include baking and long walks trying (fruitlessly) to tire out her puppy - Bella!
