Welcome to this website!

I’m Kim Emig, a post-doctorate Jansky Fellow at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. I completed my PhD in astronomy at the Leiden Observatory, advised by Xander Tielens and Huub Röttgering. My research focuses on the interstellar medium and its coupling to galaxies and their star formation. I am using and pioneering radio recombination line observations with a focus on extragalactic radio sources and developing the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR). I’m also a member of the LOFAR Survey Key Science Project and Square Kilometer Array working groups.
