Katie Lester

Hello!   I am a sixth year astronomy graduate student and PhD candidate at Georgia State University. I work with Dr. Doug Gies to measure the orbits and determine the fundamental parameters of visual & spectroscopic binary stars.

I am currently the president of AstroPAL, a mentoring group for astronomy grad students at GSU. I was also a lab TA for the intro astronomy classes.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing tennis, going to music concerts, biking, and traveling! I also teach spin classes at the gym.


PhD in Astronomy  -  Georgia State University,    expected May 2020.
MS in Physics  -  Georgia State University,    December 2017.
BS in Astrophysics  -  Lehigh University,    May 2014.
