Sarah Loebman joins our Physics Department, and my research group, as a NASA Hubble Fellow. Previously, Sarah was a postdoctoral fellow in the Michigan Society of Fellows at the University of Michigan. I am tremendously excited that Sarah is joining our group, which is now a real ‘group’! I could not have asked for a better start. Looking forward to a fantastic collaboration, as Sarah starts to brainstorm project ideas and applications for our Latte simulations of Milky Way-like galaxies.
Having been on leave (and pretending still to be a postdoc) over the last year, today I fully assume my position as Assistant Professor of Physics at UC Davis.
Excited that Space Telescope Science Institute has awarded me (together with fantastic co-investigators Shea Garrison-Kimmel, Phil Hopkins, Cameron Hummels, Sarah Loebman, and Robyn Sanderson) a Hubble Space Telescope Theory grant for Understanding the physics of gas stripping and star-formation quenching of the satellite dwarf galaxies in the Local Group.
Today I start as an Assistant Professor of Physics at UC Davis. However, I will be on leave until July 2017, while I finish my Caltech-Carnegie Fellowship in Pasadena. Now to see how much research I can get done before Life As A Professor takes over…
