Vanessa Graber is currently a senior postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Space Sciences and part of the ERC project MAGNESIA. She is also a member of the Square Kilometre Array Pulsar Working Group as well as the NSF Physics Frontiers Center JINA-CEE and the International Research Network for Nuclear Astrophysics (IReNA). Prior to coming to Barcelona, Dr. Graber was a research fellow at the McGill Space Institute in Montreal. Before moving to Canada, she completed a PhD in the Gravity Group at the University of Southampton, UK, and a master’s degree in Theoretical Astrophysics in Tübingen, Germany.
Vanessa Graber is a theoretical astrophysicist interested in many different aspects of neutron stars. Her work, for example, interfaces between astrophysics and condensed matter physics, as she studies the impact of superfluid and superconducting components on neutron star observables. Dr. Graber is also interested in analysing compact objects from a global point of view by applying machine learning techniques to study the population of neutron stars in our Milky Way.
