About Me

Anne Klitsch is a Post doctoral Research Associate at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen where she studies the dynamics of gas near actively accreting black holes. She finished her PhD in Astrophysics from Durham University, United Kingdom, and the European Southern Observatory in 2019. Her main research interests are the role of molecular gas as fuel for star formation in galaxies and gas flows into and out of galaxies and their impact on galaxy evolution. To reach her science goals she is using a combination of UV, optical, near-infrared and (sub-)mm observations.
