Dr. Quyen N. Hart is a Senior Education and Outreach Scientist in the Office of Public Outreach at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI), where she works on various aspects of NASA’s Universe of Learning and other outreach projects for the Hubble Space Telescope, the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope, and the future Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope. She earned her Ph.D. from the University of Colorado Boulder, where she studied active supermassive black holes in clusters of galaxies.  Prior to joining STScI in August 2019, she was an associate professor of physics and astronomy at Regis University, where she taught and mentored undergraduate physics and astronomy students. She also worked as a analyst at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, modeling how sunlight travels through the Earth's atmosphere. Dr. Hart has been very active in providing unique learning experiences for the public, including running summer STEM camps for underserved and under-represented middle school girls, hosting large public STEM events for over 600 people, and other astronomy-related public observing nights. She is passionate about sharing the wonders of astronomy and science to the general public because she knows that everyone can be a scientist!
