The life and times of a female researcher in nuclear physics

Today's APOD is pretty fascinating... it turns out that one of Saturn's copious count of moons, Prometheus, is essentially creating gravitational "ripples" in Saturn's thin F ring once every 15 hours. Go check it out.
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?).
