Diana Worrall is Professor of Physics at the University of Bristol. She is prominent for work on galaxies whose active nuclei eject jets to distances far beyond their stars, and which shine brightly through synchrotron and inverse-Compton radiation. Her earlier research spanned diverse topics in high-energy astrophysics, and she is known for discovery work on the X-ray ridge. She spent much of her career working in the USA, and is a past President of the Division of High Energy Astrophysics and Fundamental Physics of the International Astronomical Union.
