Sara Vannah, Physics & Astronomy

I’m a graduate studying cosmology in the Physics and Astronomy department at Dartmouth. I’m particularly interested in applications of information theory to problems in the early universe. I did my bachelor's degree in astrophysics at Wellesley College outside Boston, where I did research in solar system formation and stellar collisions. I joined SEPA because I’ve witnessed how discouraged students can be when science is presented as dry or intimidating. I hope to learn how to present science in an accessible way and preserve people’s natural curiosity about the world around them. Outside of Dartmouth, I am an avid runner and huge track nerd. I am also working on perfecting my bagel recipe.
