RAS Early Career Poster Exhibition 2020

With NAM cancelled this year, the RAS are hosting an online poster exhibition for early career researchers, professionals, and students from across astronomy and geophysics.

Here you’ll find over 200 posters spanning a wide range of topics from black holes to active galactic nuclei, to Mars missions and outreach and education.

Posters are searchable by their authors, and research field tags.

Please take your time to look at the submissions, and get in touch with the authors!

We encourage you to tweet about the exhibition using the hashtag #RASposter2020. Please note that any communications relating to the exhibition must adhere to RAS Code of Conduct, available here.

A senior team of astronomers and geophysicists are judging the submissions based on the quality of the content, communication and design. Winners of the competition will be announced back here in November 2020.

Thanks for visiting and please do show your support for the early career researchers by sharing their submissions, and asking questions!

The Large and the Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC/SMC) constitute two of the most fascinating objects of our Local Group of galaxies. Due to their proximity to us and to their turbulent interaction history they provide natural laboratories to…

We analyse the circumgalactic medium (CGM) surrounding the Milky Way-Andromeda system in three different highest resolution realizations from the HESTIA suite of cosmological constrained simulations of the Local Group. Each of the three…

We study the evolution of spectral curvature of emitting electron energy distribution (EED) against its peak energy in a combined stochastic acceleration and cooling scenario by inverse Compton (IC) modeling of spectral energy distributions (SEDs…

For decades astronomers are trying to understand how the central black hole may govern various properties of the host galaxy and vice-versa. Our work adds another step to this study. We have performed careful, multi-component, photometric-…

UV luminosity functions provide a wealth of information on the physics of galaxy formation in the early Universe. Given that this probe indirectly tracks the evolution of the mass function of dark matter halos, it has the potential to constrain…

30-40 years ago, galaxies of such a distance that their light has taken over 12 billion years to reach us were the record holders for the most distant astronomical objects known. These objects presented Astronomers with an opportunity to study…

Integral Field Units (IFUs) are a class of instrument that offer unique opportunities to spatially map the chemical signatures of galaxies. Specifically, I am using these instruments to observe galaxies within distant cluster environments to…

Cometary outgassing produces a back-reaction force on a nucleus that can alter its trajectory and rotation state. Understanding this activity is key to exploring the physics of the upper layers of cometary surfaces (with implications for their…

We study the properties of the Sydney University Molonglo Sky Survey (SUMSS) 843~MHz radio AGN population in galaxy clusters from two large catalogs created using the Dark Energy Survey (DES): $\sim$11,800 optically selected RM-Y3 and $\sim$1,000…

Stars with accurate and precise effective temperature measurements are needed to test stellar atmosphere models and calibrate empirical temperature estimates, but there are few such suitable standard stars. Parallaxes from Gaia now make it…
