Website or CV:

Mae's project is simulating Fast Radio Burst populations observed by CHIME, and making statistical predictions on how many repeating FRBs CHIME will be able to see. 

Her advisor is Dr. Duncan Lorimer.

Academically, she is interested in anything that has to do with telescopes! She plans to pursue a career in either radio/optical astronomy that involves science outreach. Outside of STEM, she loves art, proper hamster care, and driving in her space-decked-out car. 

  • "I didn't know much about FRBs before coming here, so it was really cool to broaden my research experience and knowledge in a new area."
  • "Aside from all the great astronomy research I've learned, I've also realized a lot about my work ethic and what works/doesn't work in productivity." 

  • Kenyon College
  • Major in Physics
