Biographical Info

Research

Dr. Johnson studies cataclysmic variables (CVs) such as classical novae and dwarf novae, and post-asymptotic giant branch (PAGB) objects. She has a strong interest in polarimetry, particularly spectropolarimetry, which gives information about the structure of the circumstellar material around both CVs and PAGB objects. She has recently become involved in a project using the HST Fine Guidance Sensors to find parallaxes for dwarf novae, allowing accurate distances and hence luminosities to be determined.
