For this third episode of SPACEpod, Arts and Culture student Mia Kennedy and Pure and Applied Sciences student Marianne Gounelle interview former Dawson student and recent McGill Astrophysics PhD graduate Lisa Dang, who specializes in Exo-Planetary Science.
Lisa Dang is a recent PhD graduate from McGill University and will soon join the Institute for Research on Exoplanets at Université de Montréal as a Banting postdoctoral scholar. During her graduate degree, she also held a research position at the NASA Spitzer Science Center at Caltech in Pasadena. She studies the diversity of exoplanets and their climate with a variety of space telescopes, most excitingly with the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope. She hopes to understand how planets form and evolve to ultimately uncover the recipe for habitable planets.
