Meredith Danowski

I am a graduate student in the Department of Astronomy and Center for Space Physics at Boston University.


My current research focuses on extragalactic dust. I'm working on a sounding rocket project, IMAGER, to to probe the correlation between ultraviolet dust extinction features and environment in M101. My responsibilities include data simulation, optical design, detector calibration, electronics work, and data analysis. My advisors are Tim Cook and Supriya Chakrabarti.


When not in the lab, I am very involved in promoting diversity in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields. I love teaching and spend some of my time as an instructor for the Overnight Program at the Museum of Science, Boston. What little time is left is devoted to cooking and baking, speaking German, and family and friends.
