Dr. Daryl Haggard is an Assistant Professor of Physics at McGill University in the McGill Space Institute. She studies active galactic nuclei and their host galaxies, the Galactic center and Sgr A*, and accretion-driven outflows using multi-wavelength and time domain surveys. (She co-authored, with Geoff Bower, a recent review of happenings in the Galactic Center in the February 2015 issue of Sky & Telescope.)
Before coming to McGill, Daryl spent a year as faculty at Amherst College, and four years as a CIERA postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University, where she also worked with the Reach for the Stars GK-12 program. As a graduate student at the University of Washington, she was instrumental in establishing the Pre-Major in Astronomy Program (Pre-MAP). Prior to these adventures, she completed a masters in Physics at San Francisco State University, and a bachelors in Philosophy (yes, you read that right) at St. John's College (Santa Fe).
