Biographical Info

I grew up in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, and did my undergrad in physics and astronomy at the University of Minnesota. My hobbies have variously included hiking, biking, ultimate frisbee, lindy hop, and keeping tropical freshwater fish in my office. I am of the strong opinion that extreme cold such as that found in Minnesota and Canadian winters feels better than the mild-yet-humid cold of marginally-warmer climates, and that having strong seasonal climate variations builds character.

Biographical Info

I use variable stars to study the nature and evolution of stars. My current interest centers on
pulsating red giants and supergiants, which represent the semi-final stages of stars’ lives, and are poorly-understood, compared with other variable star types.  I use archival data, especially from the
American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO), which stretches back for a century or more, edit the Journal of the AAVSO, and otherwise facilitate the contributions of skilled amateurs to
variable star research. I am also engaged in a wide variety of astronomy education and outreach projects.

Biographical Info

Natalie Price-Jones did her undergraduate in astrophysics at the University of Toronto. She has served for two years as a co-director of the AstroTours program, and is currently the co-president of the Graduate Astronomy Students Association. In her time off, she’s an avid fan of science fiction and a stationery collector.
