Medling, Anne

Anne Medling is an astronomy PhD student at UCSC. She studies nearby merging galaxies and their supermassive black holes using adaptive optics. Anne hopes to join the ranks of research faculty someday. She appreciates the teaching experience that ISEE's PDP has provided and sees it as extremely valuable for future professors, going beyond the training that is gained through standard Teaching Assistant appointments. 

The PDP experience promotes improved science education by encouraging future educators to design courses in innovative and productive ways. Anne is excited to have the opportunity to make this sort of impact in her field.
