About Jessica Lu
I am a currently NSF astronomy and astrophysics postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Astronomy, University of Hawaii, Manoa. I study star formation and young stars in extreme environments within massive starburst clusters and near the supermassive black holes in our Galaxy and Andromeda. I primarily observe in near-infrared wavelengths from ground-based telescopes using laser-guided adaptive optics and Hubble. I use high-resolution images for measuring photometry, astrometry, and spectroscopy of very crowded star fields.
