Supported by the Brinson Foundation, Bryné Hadnott works with Carnegie Staff Scientist Johanna Teske to build and automate a scheduling tool for the Carnegie Institution for Science’s Planet Finder Spectrograph (PFS)—an instrument on the Magellan Telescope used to measure changes in the wavelength of light coming from stars. She is also an artist, an aspiring activist, a science writer, and a STEM educator. She’s written for Physics Today and the AAS Women in Astronomy Blog; she serves on the Lab & Research committee for SoundBio (an innovative biology maker space); and she’s a co-organizer for Black in Astro.
