Dr. Deidre Hunter

PhD, Astronomy, 1982, University of Illinois

Dr. Deidre Hunter’s thesis work on the star-forming properties of irregular galaxies received an award from the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. She held postdoctoral fellowships at the Kitt Peak National Observatory and the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism of the Carnegie Institution of Washington before coming to Lowell Observatory in 1986. Her primary scientific interest is tiny irregular galaxies — how they originate, evolve, and produce stars and star clusters, and how they are shaped.
