As always, host Bob Barrett selects an Academic Minute to air during The Best of Our Knowledge.
Each week this program examines some of the issues unique to college campuses, looks at the latest research, and invites commentary from experts and administrators from all levels of education.
For this week‘s edition (#1275), Bob has selected Georgia Tech’s Tamara Bogdanovic’s segment that explores tidal disruption.
Dr. Tamara Bogdanovic is an Assistant Professor at the Georgia Tech School of Physics and a member of the Center for Relativistic Astrophysics. She is a theoretical astrophysicist whose research interests include ins and outs of some of the most massive black holes in the universe. Before joining the Georgia Tech faculty in 2012, Tamara was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Maryland. During this time she was a recipient of the NASA sponsored Einstein Postdoctoral Fellowship and Astronomy Prize Theory Postdoctoral Fellowship. She received Ph.D. in astrophysics from Penn State and B.Sc. in astrophysics from the University of Belgrade in Serbia.
