Miora was a MPhil student at the University of Manchester, Jodrell Bank Center for Astrophysics, under the supervision of Professor Albert Zijlstra (main Supervisor) and Professor Keith Grainge. Her research project focused on planetary nebulae evolution and the impact on their detectability with the SKA. She calculated PNe diameters and radio brightness along the stellar evolutionary tracks and compared them with the SKA specifications to deduce how long galactic PNe will remain detectable. She also reduced VLA images and use them as input to the SKA simulator to find PNe observability at different distances.


Before undertaking this project, Miora studied at the University of Antananarivo, Madagascar, where she obtained her MSc in Astrophysics and Astronomy and her BSc in Physics from the Department of Physics, Faculty of Sciences.


Upon the completion of her MPhil, Miora aimed to further her studies and pursue on a PhD in Astrophysics and radio astronomy in order to be part of the AVN and SKA projects.
