Peering into Black Holes: examining X-ray data from satellites

Dennis Gallant says he became interested in Astrophysics as a child the way a lot of people do: he loved looking at the pretty pictures of space. Luckily he also loves math, because that’s “what you do all day” as a fourth-year student completing a BSc Honours thesis.

Sophia Waddell, a President's Scholarship and Dean’s List award recipient, was first introduced to astrophysics in the International Baccalaureate program in high school. She is in her second year at Saint Mary’s University and loves math and physics. She is thrilled to be studying with astrophysicist Dr. Luigi Gallo.
