Current Graduate Students


Aliza Beverage


I am a second-year graduate student and NSF Fellow here in the Astronomy Department. I work with Mariska Kriek on the formation and assembly histories of massive quiescent galaxies using ultra-deep continuum spectroscopy.

I received my BA in physics and astrophysics from the University of Minnesota in 2019. During my time in undergrad, I worked with Claudia Scarlata and Gabe Brammer on the spatial distribution of star formation in the WISP and 3D-HST surveys.

Outside of astronomy, I enjoy hiking, lifting weights, knitting, and eating Thai food!
