Kristen M. Jones, Graduate Student
University of Virginia, Department of Astronomy
I am a 4th year graduate student at UVa. My interests include circum-nuclear environments in active galaxies, including dust, gas, star formation and AGN feedback; the effects that AGN jets and outflows have on their circum-nuclear regions; and quasar environments at high redshifts as a tracer of dark matter halos.
I am currently working on my Ph.D. thesis with Mark Lacy and Aaron Evans.
