Dr. Kaitlin Rasmussen, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of MichiganEducation: B.S. in Physics & Astrophysics, Florida State University and PhD in Physics, University of Notre DameAs an undergraduate, I studied active galactic nuclei. Then, in graduate school, I studied metal-poor stars and the origins of the elements. Now, as a post-doc, I study a variety of topics in exoplanets which lead toward the search for life. In this four-part talk, Iwill discuss my journey from college to now alongside my current research and what I learned along the way.
