The Sundial Project, ASU

Sundial is an organization that seeks to foster a diverse community of undergraduates, graduates, post-docs, and faculty with interest in the physical sciences. The community stands to support all members academically and holistically through several levels of engagement.

  • Its mission includes career development for its membership, both in academic, professional, and personal endeavors. Student retention is a priority.
  • Sundial seeks to provide an environment that both engages and excites!
  • All of its efforts are aimed at building a strong and supportive community for everyone involved. This includes active mentorship, departmental programs, and building links to inside and outside resources.

Everything we do seeks to forward these goals.

I’m a 5th-year Astrophysics Ph.D. Student. I have been a part of the Sundial Program for over 3 years now, and I’m so grateful to be a part of this community! My research involves studying the atmospheres of small, cool stars that have Earth-like planets orbiting them. Outside school, I enjoy ceramics and gardening. I look forward to building strong connections with all members of our mentoring community to learn more about different barriers that everyone has had to overcome. I’m super excited to be a part of the Access Network team this semester!
