Rijutha Jaganathan

Rijutha Jaganathan is a PhD student at Aarhus University, Denmark. She is an early stage researcher under the Marie-Sklodowska Curie ITN, funded under Horizon 2020 – ‘’EUROPAH’’. She combines her passion for astronomy with experimental surface science techniques like Scanning Tunneling Microscopy and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy to study and understand the catalytic properties of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the interstellar medium. She is equally passionate about art, architecture and history. When she is not in the lab, she is either engrossed in a book with a mug of coffee or is exploring a city by foot with a camera in hand.
