Samson Johnson, Ph.D., a new NPP Fellow who has been in his role for just a few months, is studying exoplanet demographics or how many and where exoplanets are located. An exoplanet is an extrasolar planet and there are approximately 5,000 known in the universe. During this episode of the ORAU Further Together podcast, host Michael Holtz and Johnson discuss his work, how his interest in astronomy was stoked, how a high school teacher changed the course of his life, the importance of mentorship, and so much more.
Tiffany Lewis, Ph.D., in her second year as an NPP Fellow, is working at the Astroparticle Physics Laboratory on theoretical modeling of jets ion active galaxies, especially blazars. During this episode of the ORAU Further Together podcast, host Michael Holtz talks to Lewis about her work, being mentored and mentoring others, and what she has planned for the future. As you'll discover, Lewis was initially interested in science policy before turning her attention to physics and the work she is doing today.
