Sarafina Nance


I am a first-year grad student in astronomy. I'm interested in a variety of topics, largely under the umbrella of theoretical astrophysics.

I was an undergrad at The University of Texas (Hook 'Em!), where I majored in Physics and in Astronomy. There, I worked with J. Craig Wheeler to probe the structure of pre-supernova stars using asteroseismology.

I grew up in Austin, Texas. Besides astronomy, I like tennis, yoga, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Game of Thrones.​
