Hello! I'm Julia Falcone, a third-year graduate student originally from the great state of New Jersey going for my PhD in Astronomy at Georgia State University. I work under Professor Mike Crenshaw on active galactic nuclei (AGN) processes. Check below for more details on that!
In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching movies, knitting, taking walks, and sewing. I'm known to make clothes from scratch, so my bedroom is sometimes littered with pins that I may or may not have accidentally stepped on in the middle of the night.
I am also engaged in committees and groups advocating for better conditions for graduate students, especially as it relates to low stipends. I have presented my research on this topic to the Graduate Council of the College of Arts and Sciences, spoken at length to a couple of the school's deans about this issue, and have organized other graduate students passionate about the same issues. If you are a graduate student curious about the work I have done at GSU, please don't hesitate to contact me!
