CIERA Director Vicky Kalogera to Join National Committee on Astronomy and Astrophysics

CIERA Director Vicky Kalogera has accepted an invitation to serve on the Committee on Astronomy and Astrophysics (CAA) of the National Research Council. The CAA’s purpose is to support scientific progress in astronomy and astrophysics and assist the federal government in integrating and planning programs in these fields. It is a joint committee of the Space Studies Board and the Board on Physics and Astronomy under the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Kalogera’s expertise in the origin and evolution of compact objects in stellar systems was cited as a meaningful addition to the CAA.
