My name is Lauren Woolsey, and I am a third-year Ph.D Candidate in the Astronomy Department of Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, currently working with Dr. Steven R. Cranmer on solar wind research. I have been an NSF Graduate Research Fellow since Spring 2013.
My first love is astrophysics, but I also have a fondness for German and minored in the subject as an undergraduate. I lived in the German cluster of UMD's language house for three years and currently lead the German Language Table for Harvard graduate students through Dudley House.
I am an avid player of all board and card games; my current favorites are Carcassonne and 7 Wonders. I also go to Geeks Who Drink pub quiz with friends. Other hobbies include collecting postcards, skiing, playing soccer and volleyball, and trying to remember how to play my guitar.
