Claire Murray is a postdoctoral fellow working with Josh Peek and the ISM@STScI group. Claire joined STScI in Fall 2017, after finishing her PhD in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and undergraduate degree in Physics at Carleton College (2011). Claire's research interests include how star-forming material cycles through the local interstellar medium (ISM) in various ionized, dusty, neutral and molecular phases; the structure of the ISM; and the nature of gas flows in galaxies.
- Phase transitions in the ISM
- Multi-dimensional ISM structure
- Gas accretion and feedback in galaxies
- The Magellanic System
