Portrait of Sóley Hyman
she, her, hers

Sóley is a doctoral student in the Astronomy and Astrophysics program. She attended Harvard University, where she earned bachelor’s degrees in Astrophysics and Physics, with a minor in Music. Her experience in astronomy has ranged from projects on instrumentation for high-energy particles to a multiwavelength study of a distant galaxy system. She is excited to contribute to growing multiwavelength and multimessenger astronomy communities in the search for unusual objects, systems, and phenomena, as well as possibly collaborating on small-scale instrumentation projects. In addition, Sóley is committed to making astronomy more accessible for blind and visually impaired people through sound. She is also an accomplished trumpet player and enjoys spending her free time hiking, swimming, reading, and writing poetry.
