About Erika


I am an astrophysicist.

I study the universe. I build telescopes and spectrographs to observe (mostly) hydrogen in its faintest and most diffuse forms throughout our galaxy and the universe. Primarily in the ultraviolet, but sometimes the visible.

I’m a professor at the University of Arizona.

I used to be a chef.
