Dr Jen Gupta
Public Engagement and Outreach Manager
I am the Outreach Officer for the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation at the University of Portsmouth, supported by the South East Physics Network (SEPnet) and The Ogden Trust. My responsibilities include overseeing the day-to-day outreach for the department, developing new activities, organising public events and evaluating our outreach.
My background is in astrophysics. I attended The University of Manchester and graduated with a MPhys in Physics with Astrophysics in 2008. I remained in Manchester to do a PhD in Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics with Professor Ian Browne and completed this in 2012, after which I moved to the ICG. My thesis title was “Mulitwavelength studies of active galactic nuclei in the Fermi era”.
