Visit of dr Moscibrodzka at CTP

On April 25-26, dr Monika Moscibrodzka from Radboud University, the Netherlands, was visiting the astrophysics group at CTP PAS. The topics of her research are related to the magnetically dominated accretion onto black hole in Galaxy Center, emission of polarized radiation, and radio detections of the supermassive black hole neighbourhood with the Very Long Baseline Interferometry and Event Horizon Telescope.
