Jane Turner

turnerProfessor of Physics and Director of Center for Space, Science and Technology (CSST)

Dr. Turner’s research focus is astrophysics, using X-ray observations of active galactic nuclei (AGN) to understand the process of accretion and feedback related to the nuclear supermassive black hole. This, in turn, can help us understand the link between galaxy growth and black hole growth. Dr. Turner has been the recipient of numerous research grants, primarily funded by NASA. She has authored more than 160 papers in refereed journals. Dr. Turner is a member of the ADVANCE Executive Committee.
