Welcome to my webpage. I’m Kim Emig, a US-born PhD candidate in astronomy at the Leiden Observatory, advised by Xander Tielens and Huub Rottgering. 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 in extragalactic radio sources and developing the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR), a pathfinder of the Square Kilometer Array (SKA). I’m also a member of the LOFAR Survey Key Science Project.
