Affiliate Research Scientist
Marta Sewilo obtained her Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2006. Her research is focused on the formation and early evolution of stars using multi-wavelength observations and 2D radiative transfer models. She is particularly interested in Ultracompact/Hypercompact H II regions and Young Stellar Objects in the Galaxy and the Magellanic Clouds. She is a team member of several large Spitzer Space Telescope surveys aimed to study the life-cycle of matter in the LMC (SAGE, SAGE-Spec) and SMC (SAGE-SMC), as well as the far-infrared follow-up survey of both galaxies with the Herschel Space Observatory (HERITAGE). She is also involved in large Spitzer projects to survey the Galactic plane (GLIMPSE360, Deep GLIMPSE). As a core member of the database team for Spitzer Magellanic Cloud surveys, she has gained a very strong experience with the catalogs and databases. Marta is living in Baltimore, MD.
