About Yasmeen

I’m a PhD candidate in Astronomy at Yale University. I work with the SAGA Survey on characterizing star formation in satellite galaxies around Milky Way analogs. I care deeply about mentoring, pedagogy, and public education, and I work as a McDougal Graduate Teaching Fellow at the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning at Yale. I graduated from Columbia University in 2020 with a BA in Astrophysics and Departmental Honors in Physics. As an undergraduate, I was a member of the LIGO Collaboration and my research focused on gravitational wave astrophysics. In my free time, I love solving sudoku puzzles and caring for my plant collection.
