THE ROYAL IRISH ACADEMY IS IRELAND'S LEADING BODY OF EXPERTS IN THE SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

The Royal Irish Academy/Acadamh Ríoga na hÉireann champions research. We identify and recognise Ireland’s world class researchers. We support scholarship and promote awareness of how science and the humanities enrich our lives and benefit society. We believe that good research needs to be promoted, sustained and communicated.

Masha Chernyakova

DCU

Masha Chernyakova got her Bachelor and Master degree at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technique and was awarded a Ph.D. in Physics from Lebedev Physical Institute, Moscow, Russia. After postdoctoral work at Integral Science Data Center, Geneva, Switzerland and at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies,  Ireland, she took up an academic position in the School of Physical Sciences at Dublin City University in 2011. Currently she holds the position of Lecturer in Astrophysics and is a chair of the physics with astronomy (PHA) Programme Board. Her main scientific interests lie in the area of high energy astrophysics. In particular I study the multi-wavelength properties of gamma-ray binaries and sources of high energy emission in the Galactic Center.  In her work she combines a theoretical approach of the modeling of sources with the analysis of experimental data. During her career she has organized a number of multi-wavelength observational campaigns, including radio, optical, X-ray and VHE, and  was granted with more than thousand of observational hours at ground based and space based observatories. She has over 65 publications in peer-reviewed journals and over 1500 citations (Hirsch index = 24). In addition to that she is actively involved into the simulations for the future very high energy mission, Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA).
