Embracing Change with LSST Corporation’s Beth Willman
Dr. Beth Willman is a powerhouse in the astronomy space. In this episode, she discusses how she's navigated the changes in her career, taking her all the way from academia to huge sky-mapping projects.
This episode was hosted by Dr. Adi Zolotov, Partner and Associate Director of Data Science at BCG Gamma.
In her academic career, Beth is famous for discovering a new class of galaxies, the first of which became known as Willman 1. She’s completed multiple post-doctorial fellowships and professorships from institutions such as NYU, the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and Haverford College, an institution that focuses on the liberal arts. Throughout her career, Beth has made sure to make changes based on her own goals rather than the expectations of others. She’s also a prolific mentor and still keeps in touch with many of her ex-students to this day. Beth is incredibly passionate about inclusion and diversity and is always looking for new ways to encourage more people into astronomy.
