Dr. Gioia Rau is a Research Assistant Professor at CUA, working at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center on cool evolved stars.
Her scientific interests range from studying K-M giant stars, to Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars, investigating their physical properties and evolution. She is particularly interested in studying the outer atmosphere and chromosphere of cool, evolved stars using interferometric techniques, and high-resolution spectroscopic data from the Hubble Space Telescope. Dr. Rau research is based on data that herself and others have obtained using space telescopes such as HST and ground-base telescopes such as VLTI and ALMA in Chile.
Dr. Rau holds a doctoral degree from the University of Vienna, where she graduated in October 2016.
