Jennifer Barnes Awarded 2019 HEAD Dissertation Prize

Jennifer Barnes, a postdoctoral research fellow working with Brian Metzger at Columbia, was awarded the 2019 High-Energy Astrophysics Division (HEAD) of the American Astronomical Society Dissertation prize for her dissertation.  Entitled “Radiation Transport Modeling of Kilonovae and Broad-Lined Ic Supernovae”, this work established the "radiative signatures of mergers between two neutron stars or a neutron star and black hole, as well as the radiative signatures of jet-driven supernovae produced by collapsing massive stars."
