Pulsar Search Collaboratory (PSC)
What is the PSC?
The PSC allows high school students to look for new pulsars using data from the GBT. If you are interested in joining or would like more information check out their website.
What I do for the PSC?
I serve as a graduate mentor for two high school students at the School for Math and Science at Vanderbilt. The students are working on a project using the 20 meter telescope at the Green Bank Observatory.
Other Outreach Efforts
- I am a member of the NANOGrav Outreach group. As a member, I am certified to visit schools and present a presentation about NANOGrav. If you would like me or another member to visit your school or club, please visit this page.
- I am helping with an exhibit at Vanderbilt's central library entitled, "The Shadow of the Sun: E.E. Barnard and the Solar Eclipse." My case compares astrophotography taken by Barnard to photos taken recently.
