Genna Crom

4th year astrophysics Ph.D. student


I’m a Ph.D. student and radio astronomer in the New Mexico Tech Physics Department working on bright centers of galaxies or Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) using the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA). I’m also a teaching assistant for the (calculus-based) introductory physics labs and recitations.

Outside of work, I am an avid amateur radio enthusiast (KJ5BQG) and a flute/piccolo player in the local musical productions.


Aug 4, 2023 My talk “Supermassive Black Hole Jets” was awarded 2nd place in the Naval Research Lab’s end of summer talks!
Apr 20, 2023 I received the Leslie Fallon Teaching Award for “distinguished teaching of physics”! :sparkles:
