Illuminating Dark Matter
is a graduate student working towards a PhD in Physics at Berkeley. He first developed an interest for scientific research during his undergraduate degree at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, before moving to Cambridge, England for a year to study math. He is currently working on theoretical models in ecology with Prof. John Harte, but did research at the Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics before that. When he’s not teaching or doing research, he enjoys cooking and baking, singing, and hiking.
Galaxies Across Time
is a 4th-year graduate student in the Berkeley Astronomy Department studying galaxy formation and evolution. Before moving to Berkeley, she grew up in North Carolina then did an undergraduate degree in physics in Boulder, Colorado. Most of her time at work is spent trying to understand how and why galaxies stop forming stars, quantifying the sizes of galaxies, and debugging code. Most of her time outside of work is spent rock climbing, backpacking, brewing beer, baking bread, and reading sci-fi.
