Plenary Talk: Beatrice M. Tinsley Prize: One Large Galaxy with One Small Telescope (by Caitlin Doughty)In the first plenary talk of Tuesday, Julianne Dalcanton gave a talk describing the research that garnered her the Beatrice M. Tinsley Prize, which is awarded for an outstanding research contribution to astronomy “of an exceptionally innovative character”. In this talk, Dalcanton described the research topics through the trajectory of her career from her graduate studies of low surface brightness (LSB) galaxies to her current work on the Panchromatic Hubble Andromeda Treasury (PHAT). On the advice of fellow astronomer Sarah Tuttle, she promised “some story, a few adventures, and a little wow”.
