Biographical Sketch: Pauline McGinnis received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in physics from the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. She was awarded a PhD in astrophysics at the same institution in July 2017, after having worked with Dr. Silvia Alencar and Dr. Catherine Dougados (of IPAG – the Institut de Planétologie et d’Astrophysique de Grenoble, France). Her thesis focused on the study of accretion and ejection processes in classical T Tauri stars in the young stellar cluster NGC 2264. She then worked as a post-doctoral researcher at IPAG until December 2018, investigating spectral signatures of accretion and ejection in young stars. Since July 2019 she is a post-doctoral researcher at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, where she is involved in the ERC project entitled EASY Ejection and Accretion Structures in YSOs) led by Prof. Tom Ray.
