Teacher Bio: Laura-May Abron

I am a French-American from Paris. I studied astrophysics at the Paris Observatory—one of the world’s longest-running observatories—where I wrote a memoir on Exoplanets. I have appeared as a guest astrophysics expert on a pop science show, consulted for science apps, been published in the Griffith Observer, run a group to engage women in science, do science communication and make art and music related to astrophysics. I spend my free time eclipse, aurora and tornado-chasing. I can’t wait to share our inspiring universe with all of you.
