ERC Advanced Grant for Raffaella Morganti

Submitter: AJPOD
Description: Prof. Dr. Raffaella Morganti, Head of ASTRON's Astronomy Group, has been awarded a 2.5MEuro European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant. This grant will permit Raffaella to employ PhD students, post-docs and a software engineer over a period of 5 years. The aim of her research project is to use APERTIF and LOFAR to better understand the role of Active Galactic Nuclei and their related feedback mechanisms on Galaxy evolution. We congratulate Raffaella with this great achievement and wish her every success with this exciting research project.

ERC Advanced Grants are extremely competitive and are awarded only to exceptional researchers. Nevertheless, Raffaella's grant is now the fifth ERC Advanced Grant that has been awarded (Europe wide) to Lofar and/or Apertif related projects. A very clear demonstration of the excitement that exists in the astronomical community about the scientific potential of these instruments, and about the people involved with them.
