General Meeting - Wednesday, April 21, 2021
Description: Dr. Josh Walawender is a staff astronomer at the W. M. Keck Observatory on Maunakea on the Big Island of Hawaii. He received B.A.s in Physics and Astrophysics from the University of California at Berkeley in 2000 and his Ph.D. from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2006. Josh has worked on infrared instrumentation, astronomical data reduction pipelines, and robotic telescopes. His research interests are in star formation where he studies protostellar outflows — the phenomenon where young stars launch high speed jets of material out of their poles as they accrete material. Josh is also an avid amateur astronomer and telescope builder and still enjoys observing under the Big Island’s pristine night skies.
