Daniela Doneva is currently an Emmy Noether junior research group leader at the University of Tübingen, Germany. She obtained her Ph.D. at the University of Sofia, Bulgaria, under the supervision of Stoytcho Yazadjiev. Daniela then moved to a postdoc position at Tübingen, where she was awarded a Humboldt fellowship, followed by a Margarete von Wrangell habilitation fellowship combined with an Elite programme grant of the Baden-Württemberg Foundation. Her research focuses on studying the structure and dynamics of neutron stars and black holes in Einstein’s theory of gravity and its generalizations.
The combination of gravitational-wave and x-ray observations of neutron stars provides new insight into the structure of these stars, as well as new confirmation of Einstein’s theory of gravity. Read More »
