Being selected for the 69th Lindau Meet is a great honour, and Rijutha Jaganathan is both excited and nervous to be attending this prestigious event. She is doing her doctoral research in Liv Hornekær’s group at IFA, studying the catalytic role of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the interstellar medium (ISM). In the ISM, PAHs potentially catalyze the formation of small molecules like molecular hydrogen and water. In case you are wondering: yes it is the same PAHs that you scrape off your too-well-done grilled steak or toast!

The 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, which will be held in this summer, is dedicated to physics. The key topics are cosmology, laser physics and gravitational waves inspired by the winners of the 2018 prize. The 80th anniversary of the discovery of nuclear fission will also be celebrated through special talks and blog posts.

 Rijutha Jaganathan is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow and is a part of the EU network called EUROPAH and her application was supported by them.
