Emilie Burnham Head Shot

I am currently attending Penn State University to obtain any Ph.D. in Astronomy and Astrophysics with a graduate minor in Computational Sciences. My research interests include simulation design, software manufacturing, and high-performance data analytics.

I am a graduate (Summa Cum Laude; departmental honors) of Texas Christian University where I studied Physics, Astronomy, and Mathematics. I served as a teaching assistant to introductory physics and archeoastronomy courses, and president of the Society of Physics Students (SPS; Sigma Pi Sigma). I also participated in a research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) with the University of Colorado at Boulder and the National Solar Observatory in the summer of 2021.
