December 2016 Extra

In the show this time, we talk to Dr. Cristina Romero-Canizales about LIRGI: radio survey of ultra-luminous IR galaxies, new Director of JBCA, Professor Mike Garrett talks to us in this month's JodBite, and your astronomy questions are answered by Minnie, Ben, and George in Ask an Astronomer.

JodBite with Professor Mike Garrett

Inaugural Sir Bernard Lovell Chair and new Director of Jodrell Bank Center for Astrophysics Professor Mike Garrett talks to Minnie Mao about his career path leading to his directorship of JBCA and his time as a PhD student at Jodrell Bank Observatory. Mike discusses his many research interests including VLBI and SETI, and also talks about the future of the JBCA.

Interview with Dr. Cristina Romero-Canizales

Dr. Cristina Romero-Canizales talks to Max Potter about her involvement with the LIRGI project. LIRGI is an e-MERLIN legacy project surveying 42 ultra-luminous infra-red galaxies, attempting to trace the star formation history of the universe. We talk about their observations of galaxies with high star formation as well as accreting active galactic nuclei, interesting mini-AGN jets, and touch briefly on Cristina's related work with black holes.
