Laura Murphy

PhD Researcher



I am a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Jose Groh studying the first stellar explosions and their progenitors. Funded by the Irish Research Council, my work aims to understand the nature of the first stars and their explosive deaths as supernovae, with particular emphasis on how rotation affects their evolution. I am also interested in outreach, and am an executive committee member of WITS (Women in Technology and Science) Ireland.
