Susie works on fast radio burst (FRB) research. She is currently searching for FRBs from the local starburst galaxy M82. Because of the conditions in starburst galaxies, astronomers expect them to contain a large number of magnetars. A confirmed burst from M82 would lend credence to the magnetar hypothesis for FRB origins.
