Center for Astrophysics
Laboratory Astrophysicist


Amy Gall is an experimentalist at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian. She primarily works in the electron beam ion trap (EBIT) facility, where highly charged ions are created and trapped for spectroscopic investigations. She studies atomics processes, including electron impact ionization, excitation, and recombination (radiative and dielectronic) in the laboratory. The atomic data produced are used to test or benchmark the underlying atomic physics calculations used in astrophysical models. She is currently involved in taking high-resolution X-ray and EUV measurements for X-ray (XRISM/Chandra) and Solar Missions.
