Sravani Vaddi

Dr. Sravani Vaddi graduated with a Master degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological university, India. She later worked as a software engineer at Tata Consultancy Services, India where she worked on the development, testing and maintenance of Ericsson broadband networks. Her interest in astronomy led her to strive for and pursue doctoral studies in astronomy. She obtained her doctoral degree from Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), uSa where she worked with Dr. Chris Odea and Dr. Stefi Baum on Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN). She worked as a post–doctoral fellow at the National Centre for Radio astrophysics and at Inter–university Centre for astronomy and astrophysics.

Her research involves imaging and spectroscopic observational studies of active galactic nuclei (AGN) at multiple wavelengths and addresses different aspects of it such as: evolution of AGN in different environments (isolated, galaxy groups and clusters), effect of energetic feedback from AGN on star formation, and an unifying model of AGN.

Vaddi's projects include high–resolution studies of AGNs that host double nuclei, working on the commissioning of the upgraded VLBI system for Arecibo.
