Allison P. M. Towner

I am a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, where I work with Dr. Adam Ginsburg and Dr. Elizabeth Lada studying massive star formation in the Milky Way. I received my Ph.D. in Astronomy in August 2020 from the University of Virginia, where my thesis advisor was Dr. Crystal Brogan of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO). My thesis is entitled, "Investigating the Early Stages of Massive Star Formation in Protocluster Environments: Multiwavelength Studies of Extended Green Objects," and can be found here.
