Taylor Kutra

Quest alumna Taylor Kutra graduated in 2017 and her question was Are We Alone in the Galaxy? She teamed up with researchers at the University of British Columbia for a series of observational astronomy projects, which culminated in her keystone project “Follow-up Observations of WASP-36”. The aim of her keystone was to provide follow-up observations of known transiting extrasolar planets. The observations are part of a long-term effort to search for changes in transit signatures, such as transit timing variations and transit duration variations, which could indicate the presence of additional planets. For this work she received the university awards of distinction and showcase, and she went on to present her keystone research at the 230th American Astronomical Society Conference. Since graduation, she has been continuing studies and research at the University of British Columbia, traveling, and looking forward to beginning graduate school in the fall of 2018.
