Goldwater Scholarship in recognition of her academic and research success and to support her continued “academic study and research in the fields of science, mathematics, and engineering.” Fu has participated in the Carnegie Summer Undergraduate Research program over the past two summers, working with staff astronomer Josh Simon studying dwarf galaxies and streams of stars surrounding our Milky Way using data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.

We're excited to announce the 2018 Carnegie Astronomy Lecture Series. This will be the 16th season of the popular Series, and once again, we’re delighted to partner with The Huntington Library at their beautiful venue. Since the past year has seen some of the most-revolutionary discoveries in the history of astronomy, the 2018 Series promises to be especially exciting; it includes two of our finest young postdoctoral fellows—Drs. Marja Seidel and Maria Drout—along with top scientists from Harvard and JPL.
