@AstroCanada for the Week of Nov. 18 - Jonathon Sick

Jonathan Sick is a PhD student in the Department of Physics, Engineering Physics andAstronomy at at Queen's University. He is surveying the Andromeda Galaxy, a neighbour to our Milky Way, with the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope. The goal of his thesis is to chart the stellar populations and structure of Andromeda and calibrate our interpretation of the near-infrared light of galaxies. Along the way, he enjoys the challenge of writing software to process the massive data sets made by today's telescopes.
