Biography

Dr. Dexheimer is a theoretical astrophysicist.  She specializes in the study of dense and hot matter.  Her research focus has been on the properties and dynamics of neutron stars and proto-neutron stars.  In such dense bodies, particles different from the ones present in atomic nuclei, protons and neutrons, can exist. These particles are hyperons, baryons that contain non-zero strangeness, and quarks.
