Scanning the Milky Way: Identifying High Energy Sources in our Galaxy
Reuben Gazer is a 23 year old graduate student completing his M.Sc in Astrophysics at the University of Alberta. After completing a B.Sc in Physics at McMaster University in 2015 he came to Edmonton to study x-ray binary populations in the galaxy. His research examines x-ray emitting sources in the galaxy and compares these results to expectations of these exotic emitters from galactic models.
