Andreja Gomboc - Gaia
University of Ljubljana
Andreja Gomboc received her PhD from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2001 with the dissertation on simulations of tidal disruption of stars during a close encounter with a massive black hole in a galactic center. In 2002-2004 she was a Marie Curie postdoctoral Fellow at the Astrophysics Research Institute, Liverpool John Moores University, UK, where she was involved in the development of the automatic pipeline for identification of optical afterglows of Gamma Ray Bursts and their rapid follow-up observations with the 2-m robotic Liverpool Telescope on La Palma, Canaries. Her research interests include also rotational velocities of symbiotic stars. She is a core member of Gaia's Radial Velocity Spectrometer Working Group with her main interest on stellar rotational velocities as they will be determined from RVS spectra.
