Dr Maguire’s research interests include explosive transients, cosmology, and supernova progenitors. She is interested in observational studies of stellar explosions, from exploring the diversity of supernova populations to constraining their use for cosmology.
Recently, her research has focused on the exciting new area of gravitational-wave astrophysics, and the rapid discovery and follow-up of the electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational wave triggers. Her research is currently funded by the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council, as well as the European Union through an ERC Starting Grant.
