Maria Chernyakova got her Bachelor and Master degrees at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technique and was awarded a Ph.D. in Physics from Lebedev Physical Institute, Moscow, Russia. After postdoctoral work at Integral Science Data Center, Geneva, Switzerland and
at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, Ireland, she took up an academic position in the School of Physical
Sciences at Dublin City University in 2011. She currently holds the position of Associate Professor and is a chair of the physics with astronomy (PHA) Programme Board.
scientific interests lie in the area of high-energy astrophysics. In her work, she combines a theoretical approach of the modelling of sources with the analysis of experimental data. During her career, she has organized a number of multiwavelength observational campaigns, including radio, optical, X-ray and VHE, and was granted more than a thousand observational hours at ground based and space based observatories. She has over 80 publications in peer-reviewed journals and over 2300
