Victoria Grinberg

Victoria Grinberg

Dr. Victoria Grinberg is staff scientist with the European Space Agency (ESA) based at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in the Netherlands. Her research focuses on the two of the most extreme environments in our universe: the vicinity of accreting black holes and neutron stars and the winds of the massive supergiant stars. The extremes of the universe and the depth of space have taught her profound humility towards our small, vulnerable, and unique planet - a humility she also tries to communicate to the public. She has been a member of Astronomers for Planet Earth since 2019 and has been involved in multiple aspects of the organization. She is also part of the sustainability working group of the European Astronomical Society.
