Current Graduate Students


Maude Gull


I am a first-year graduate student in astronomy (Yay!).

Before Berkeley, I earned my B.Sc. in Physics and Mathematics at MIT in 2019. I worked on a variety of projects surrounding the early universe. I worked with Anna Frebel to understand metal-poor stars and neutron capture processes, and with Alan Guth on hybrid inflation and primordial black holes.

Besides research, I am excited about outreach events, science communication and astrophotography.

Unrelated to space and astronomy, I grew up in Zürich, Switzerland and love mountains and the outdoors. I also enjoy playing and watching sports and I really like movies!

You can find me at desk 202E, come say hi 🙂
