Emma Storm – Class of 2010
Emma Storm graduated from NYU in 2010 with a bachelors in physics. She entered a graduate program in physics at UC Santa Cruz in the fall of 2010, where she worked on multiwavelength observations of galaxy clusters with her advisor, Professor Tesla Jeltema. As a graduate student, in addition to research, she participated in a multi-year program to train early-career scientists in evidence-based teaching methods through the Institute for Scientist Engineer Educators (ISEE). She graduated with a PhD in physics in the spring of 2015. Her thesis is titled "Nonthermal Emission from Galaxy Clusters." She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at GRAPPA at the University of Amsterdam. She is working on multiwavelength astrophysical searches for dark matter with her supervisor, Professor Christoph Weniger. Her long-term career goals include a strong emphasis on teaching as well as research. In her free time, she likes to cook and take long bike rides exploring her new home of Amsterdam.
