WANDA DIAZ MERCED
She Hears the Stars.
Wanda interned at NASA in 2005 and had several more very successful summers opportunities at NASA. When funding was no longer available, she returned to her home in Puerto Rico. The only job she could find was sweeping floors in a factory. “We laugh a lot”, she told me about her co-workers. Soon afterwards, she found her way to the University of Glascow, where she earned her doctorate. She now does post- doctoral work at the South African Astronomical Observatory and is a well-respected sonic astrophysicist.
