    More Details Hide Details These became known as Fanaroff-Riley type I and II radio galaxies (FRI and FRII). In FRI sources the major part of the radio emission comes from closer to the centre of the source, whereas in FRII sources the major part of the emission comes from hotspots set away from the centre (see active galaxies). Riley lectures and supervises physics within the Natural Sciences Tripos at the University of Cambridge. She is the daughter of British marine geophysicist Maurice Hill and granddaughter of Nobel-prize winning physiologist Archibald Vivian Hill.
