Alice Harding has been an Astrophysicist in the Astrophysics Science Division at Goddard Space Flight Center since 1980, after receiving a B.A. from Bryn Mawr College and a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Her research interests have focused on the theory of high-energy particle acceleration and radiation processes in pulsars, highly magnetized neutron stars (magnetars), gamma-ray bursts, and supernova remnants. She is a fellow of the American Physical Society and a Legacy Fellow of the American Astronomical Society. She is a member of the NICER Science Team and the Fermi Collaboration.


Plasma Fluctuations Could Generate Bright Pulsar Emission

Calculations link coherent pulsar emission to fluctuations in electron-positron production. Read More »
