Society for Popular Astronomy

The Society for Popular Astronomy is a particularly active astronomical society based in the UK. After being a member for several years during my A-levels and undergraduate studies, I jumped at the chance to write for their bi-monthly member’s magazine in 2015. Since then I have been asked to several articles a year for their AstroNews section.

Highlights include:

  • Being asked to write another piece after my first one
  • Writing a piece for features which became the cover story
  • Reviewing books for the magazine

More recently, I have joined the editorial team and will be helping to gather news articles for future magazines.

Astrobites

Astrobites is a daily summary of astrophysical journals written by graduate students in astronomy since 2010. I joined the collaboration in January 2017 and have regularly contributed ever since. Being an astrobiter not only requires writing articles, but I also edit posts written by members of the group.

Highlights from working with Astrobites include:

  • Interviewing several plenary speakers for AAS230 and AAS231
  • Having a post exceed 500 views (next goal = 1,000)
  • A few of my articles being translated into Spanish for Astrobitos

My articles are available here.
