Physics graduate student Micah Oeur
Oeur's broad research interests include observation-simulation comparisons, testing novel tools in astronomy, and the chemo-dynamical evolution of the Milky Way's disk! Currently, She is being mentored by my advisor, Prof. Sarah Loebman, and Adrian Price-Whelan on quantifying how much the effects of disequilibria skew the accuracy of galactic mass inferences. In order to do this, She is implementing a method called Orbital Torus Imaging (which combines stellar chemistry and kinematics) in the Feedback in Realistic Environments (FIRE) cosmological zoom-in simulations. In her free time, she enjoys horseback archery and rock climbing!
