The first in her field: Astrophysicist Lisa Bugnet joined the faculty at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA). With her, the Institute opens up a new field as well as numerous opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaborations. Bugnet’s research applies asteroseismology to study the magnetic fields of stars, much like we use seismology to study Earth’s structure. With this, we can develop a better understanding of the age and evolution of stars—and even the universe as a whole.
