Hannah Dykaar receives the 2018 CITA Graduate Scholarship

Hannah Dykaar is a first year Ph.D. student in the department of Astronomy and Astrophysics. Her first undergraduate research was conducted at the University of Waterloo. She worked on black hole thermodynamics in higher curvature gravity with Robert Mann, and testing an alternative to black hole event horizons using gravitational wave data with Niayesh Afshordi. She then worked at McGill University with Daryl Haggard studying an X-ray transient in the Galactic Center, as well as the afterglow of the neutronstar merger detected by LIGO. She is currently working with Bryan Gaensler for her AST1501 project, searching for Radio transients using the VLA Sky Survey.
