Leo Alcorn

Leo Alcorn is a postdoctoral fellow at the David A Dunlap Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics. Her research focuses on the properties of galaxies in galaxy clusters and how dense environments such as galaxy clusters and proto-clusters affect galaxy evolution. In her free time, she is an amateur ballet dancer and writes short horror fiction.

Sara Rugheimer


Dr. Sarah Rugheimer is an astrophysicist and the Allan I Carswell Chair at York University in Toronto. She works on how to detect life on an exoplanet by looking for atmospheric biosignatures. Here research interests are modelling the atmosphere and climate of extrasolar planets with a particular focus on atmospheric biosignatures in Earth-like planets as well as modelling early Earth conditions.

Natalia Porqueres

Natalia is a Beecroft fellow at Oxford University, working on cosmology. Her work focuses on understanding the large-scale structures of the Universe. For that, INatalia developed statistical and data analysis tools to optimally extract the information from the observations and make full use of the data.

Julie Hlavacek-Larrondo


Julie Hlavacek-Larrondo is a Canada Research Chair and an associate professor of physics at the Université de Montréal. She is an expert on the most massive black holes in the Universe and her work is revealing how these black holes act as the beating heart of galaxies, ultimately shaping the properties of galaxies throughout cosmic time.

Jiamin Hou

Jiamin is currently a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow hosted by the University of Florida and the Max-Planck Institute of Extraterrestrial physics. She is interested in cosmology and applying summary statistics to the large-scale structure to understand the early Universe as well as fundamental laws of physics.
