Introducing Nicole Gugliucci

Astronomer, writer, educator, skeptic, maker-of-tiny-comets, and all around geek Dr. Nicole Gugliucci has made it her mission to study and share the Universe. Known as the “NoisyAstronomer,” she earned a doctorate studying radio astronomy in 2012 from the University of Virginia and working with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. Having started with millimeter-wavelength radio astronomy in college, she worked her way down the spectrum to the 2-meter wavelength work of PAPER, an array in South Africa to search for the hydrogen in the early Universe. She now leads the informal education efforts and participates in educational research with the citizen science project CosmoQuest. She travels to conventions around the country sharing citizen science with whomever will listen. She tweets as @NoisyAstronomer, a pun on radio astronomy and her birthplace of New York City.
