The life and times of a female researcher in nuclear physics
Monday, May 16, 2011
Congratulations to the crew of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, who lifted off this morning just before 9am Eastern time on their way to the ISS. This is the last flight for Endeavour and the second-to-last shuttle flight ever.
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?).
