Third year graduate student Meenakshi Rajagopal is spending 6 months at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) institute near Berlin (Germany). She will work with scientists in the DESY gamma-ray group to perform a new measurement of the extragalactic gamma-ray background. This background represents one of most important observables in multi-messenger astrophysics.
