Alisa Fersch is attending the annual American Astronomical Society meeting in Austin, Texas from January 8-12. This is because of her summer’s research work for National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO) in Tucson, Arizona.

She will be visiting a college friend while there before flying to Puerto Rico for a week of field work on the beach and inland. This field work will be with fellow Wesleyan University seniors before returning to Connecticut for their final semester.
