My name is Ivalu Barlach Christensen, I am 26 years old. Currently, I am a doctoral candidate at the Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie, Germany, investigating the chemistry of the star forming region, Cygnus X. During the summer of 2018 and 2019, I was an intern at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian, as part of the Greenland Telescope Project working with Dr. Nimesh Patel.
I grew up in Aasiaat, Greenland, where I went to the primary school Gammeqarfik, and moved to Sisimiut, Greenland, for the technical high school. I have my B.Sc in physics from Aalborg University, Denmark, and my M.Sc. in astrophysics from Lund University.
