Edward Ward’s Presentation at the American Astronomical Society

Edward Ward is a Senior majoring in Astronomy at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo. Also, an Undergraduate Research Intern at the Hawaii Space Grant Consortium. Recently, Edward Ward got the opportunity to present his research at the American Astronomical Society in New Orleans, Louisiana.

"I was introduced to the Hawai'i Space Grant program by my mentor early on in my undergraduate research career at the University of Hawai'i at Hilo. After completing an intro-level project with my mentor, she encouraged me to apply for the program with a project we had planned. Thanks to additional travel funds provided by the HSGC, I had the opportunity to present my work at the 242nd and 243rd meetings of the American Astronomical Society. The work I presented included details of my experience observing with the University of Hawai'i 2.2-meter telescope on Mauna Kea, and the data reduction challenges I was tasked with overcoming for the Supernova Integral Field Spectrograph (SNIFS) instrument on the 2.2m." - Edward Ward
