I am one of the current co-hosts of SpaceDrafts, Tucson's flavor of Astronomy on Tap. Astronomy on Tap hosts free public talks by astronomers and other scientists at locations around the world. Head over here for more info.
Curious about what it takes to make the James Webb Space Telescope happen? Check out my talk Countdown to JWST at the Steward Observatory Public Evening Lecture Series.
In addition to being an astronomer, I am also a huge nerd who enjoys reading, video games, movies, board games, and other nerdy entertainment. I love hiking, desert gardening, and traveling and have occasionally been known to take some pictures.
I am also an amateur dog trainer and behaviorist. In August 2010, my husband and I adopted Psyche, an American Eskimo Dog with reactivity and behavioral problems, which led us down the frustrating and fascinating rabbit hole of the canine psy...mind.
