Allison Wing Shan Man
Dunlap Postdoctoral Fellow Dunlap Institute of Astronomy & Astrophysics, University of Toronto, Canada
Allison is an astrophysicist. She studies how galaxies formed and evolved, by analysing data taken with telescopes located in space and in remote regions on Earth. She earned her PhD from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. Keen to foster diversity and equity in science, Allison is involved in a few projects that use astronomy as a gateway to build up STEMM interest and capacity in several African countries. Through the Homeward Bound program she hopes to apply her skills and tap into the group’s interdisciplinary expertise to address challenges faced by our planet.
