Jessica Rosenberg    

Freelance Writer

Rosenberg is an expert in the study of gas and stellar content. She’s been at Mason since 2007.

Regularly appearing in such journals as Astrophysical Journal and Astronomical Journal, Rosenberg’s research centers on one of the most fundamental questions in astrophysics: How do galaxies form and evolve?

Currently, she is undertaking the largest statistical study of the stars and gas in the local universe to date, work that will likely lead to a number of high-profile collaborative projects and increase Mason’s visibility in the astrophysics community.

Since 2000, Rosenberg has been the primary investigator on nine successful grant proposals, totaling $1.2 million. In addition, she has written 31 peer-reviewed articles, including nine as first author, and has given 10 invited national and international seminars since 2005 at such places as Yale University, the University of Maryland and Greenbank Observatory.

In 2008, she received much media attention when one of her undergraduate research students discovered a new galaxy.

A former National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow, Rosenberg has a BA in astronomy and physics from Wesleyan College and a PhD in astronomy from the University of Massachusetts. She has held research positions at the University of Colorado and the University of Massachusetts.
