Alysa Obertas


I am queer and I am an astrophysicist. //

I’m a PhD candidate in the Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Toronto and the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics. I study the limits and survivability of compact, multi-planet systems to better understand the thousands of extra-solar planets observed to date. I’m incredibly passionate about astronomy outreach, serving as co-director for monthly AstroTours and regularly present planetarium shows. I also crochet, climb, hike, and dance ballet!
