Stella Koch Ocker

astrophysicist (she/her/hers)

I grew up in San Anselmo, CA before attending Oberlin College, where I received my BA with High Honors in Physics in 2018. Recently I received a Ph.D. from the Department of Astronomy at Cornell University, where I worked with Prof. Jim Cordes and Dr. Shami Chatterjee, along with collaborators in the Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves (NANOGrav) and on the Voyager Interstellar Mission, studying radio wave propagation through the interstellar and circumgalactic media of the Milky Way and other galaxies. I am moving on to a Brinson Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship at Caltech and Carnegie Observatories.
