I’m Kate (Brutlag) Follette, an Assistant Professor of Astronomy at Amherst College. Previously, I was a NASA Sagan Fellow at the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology at Stanford University. I received my PhD in Astronomy from Steward Observatory in December 2014.
I have the honor and privilege of getting to study and teach about the universe for a living. More specifically, I de-twinkle stars in order to hunt for extrasolar planets, teach courses in physics and astronomy, and crusade for an emphasis on quantitative literacy across the undergraduate curriculum. Want to know more about any of that? Check out the links above and below, or contact me directly.
