“Shadows in Space: What We Learn from Eclipses, Occultations, and Transits”

Dr. Jennifer Hoffman, August 2017 General Meeting Speaker

Presented by:

Dr. Jennifer L. Hoffman
Associate Professor of Physics & Astronomy
University of Denver

Dr. Jennifer Hoffman earned her Ph.D. in Astronomy from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2002 and held an NSF Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellowship at UC Berkeley before joining the DU faculty in 2007. Her observational and computational research focuses on the connection between supernova explosions and their massive star progenitors, as illuminated by the circumstellar material surrounding both types of objects.

Dr. Hoffman also has strong interests in supporting and retaining women of color and white women in the physical sciences; she is a co-director of DU SciTech, a summer STEM camp and academic mentoring program for middle-school girls of color in Denver.
