Introducing Adi Foord

Adi Foord is currently a fifth year PhD candidate at the University of Michigan, where she studies pairs of actively accreting supermassive black holes (aka, active galactic nuclei or “AGN”). She spends most of her time running her code BAYMAX (Bayesian AnalYsis of Multiple AGN in X-rays) on Chandra data, finding new AGN pairs and studying their preferential environments. 

In her free time Adi enjoys running, cross-stitch, and tending to her pepper plants. She loves to make a variety of interesting hot sauces throughout the summer using her home-grown peppers

She will be defending her thesis at the end of spring, and then will be moving to sunny California where she will continue studying AGN pairs as a Porat Fellow at the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology at Stanford University.
