Women in STEM Discussion Series

Guest facilitator:Eileen Meyer, Assistant Professor, Physics

The Commons : Women's Center
A discussion group for UMBC's women in STEM. In our November discussion, our guest facilitator will be Eileen Meyer, Assistant Professor, Physics who will discuss science + motherhood. 

Dr. Meyer was previously a postdoctoral fellow at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, MD, which manages the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and upcoming James Webb Space Telescope. While at STScI, Dr. Meyer worked with the HST Proper Motions group to measure, for the first time, the superluminal motions of several nearby extragalactic jets as seen by Hubble. She also used the Very Large Array (VLA), HST, the Chandra X-ray observatory, and the Fermi gamma-ray telescope to measure the speed of jets from black holes.

Pizza will be provided during this lunch time discussion.


This event is part of the Women's Center's Women in STEM Discussion Series. Each discussion group will take place on the 3rd Friday of each month at noon during the fall semester. Guest facilitators (staff and faculty in STEM fields at UMBC) change each month.
