Kirsten Kraiberg Knudsen

Professor at Chalmers, Space, Earth and Environment, Astronomy and Plasmaphysics, Extragalactic Astrophysics

Kirsten Kraiberg Knudsen's research concerns galaxy formation and evolution and Kirsten focuses in particularly on star forming galaxies at cosmological distances. Kirsten Knudsen uses large, modern telescopes such as ALMA, VLT, IRAM PdBI, and VLA to study the properties of redshift z=2-7 (lensed) submillimeter galaxies and quasar host galaxies. She receives funding from the VR and KAW as a Wallenberg Academy Fellow. Her research group includes the PhD students Judit Fogasy and Jean-Baptiste Jolly, and the postdocs Suzy Jones and Flora Stanley (former members include Lulu Fan, Guillaume Drouart, Theresa Nilsson, and Lukas Lindroos).Kirsten is a member of the Swedish Young Academy. Further, she is involved in the Gothenburg Center for Advance Studies.
