My name is Gioia Rau, and I am a Research Assistant Professor at CUA, and a research scientist ad NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center where I work on cool evolved stars and exoplanets science.
My scientific interests range from studying K-M giant stars, to Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars, investigating their physical properties and evolution. I am 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. My research is based on data that myself and others have obtained using space telescopes such as HST and ground-base telescopes such as VLTI and ALMA in Chile.
I hold a doctoral degree from the University of Vienna, where I graduated in October 2016.
