The life and times of a female researcher in nuclear physics
Wednesday, June 11, 2008
Hats off to GLAST. A video of the launch is available on the BBC website (reminds me of the giddiness I felt when Spitzer launched, or watching the live video feed from NASA mission control when the most recent Mars rovers landed).
I'm a research scientist in low energy nuclear astrophysics, currently doing research in collaboration with groups across the northern hemisphere. I have a PhD in Applied Physics and a BS in Engineering Physics from well-renowned college in Colorado, have performed with several semi-professional orchestras, once was a park ranger, and read voraciously.
Oderint dum metuant (did I mention I also studied Latin?).
