ASTR3420: Life Beyond Earth (Instructor, Summer 2011)
AdvisingI have advised three undergraduates:
- Catherine Zucker (June 2012-Present)
Performing photometry on WISE images of compact group galaxies
- David Chen (Fall 2011)
Morphologically classified galaxies in compact groups in a uniform manner
- Natalie Butterfield (March 2010-August 2011)
Created an optical color-magnitude diagram of galaxies in compact groups
I highly recommend attending a public night at one of our two local observatories.
Dark Skies, Bright Kids
I am an active member of Dark Skies, Bright Kids, an astronomy outreach group at UVa. We hold weekly "astronomy club" meetings at local elementary schools, returning to work with the same students for 8-10 weeks.
Check out the DSBK site for awesome interactive activities to try in your outreach club or classroom!
I am also one of the key members in piloting and developing the program for our portable planetarium.
