Laura Lenkic

PhD Student, Department of Astronomy, The University of Maryland

Welcome! I am a PhD student at the University of Maryland, College Park and I am interested in studying the formation and evolution of galaxies. I currently study molecular gas in high redshift galaxies with Dr. Alberto Bolatto. I completed my BSc in Physics and my MSc in Astronomy at the University of Western Ontario. Outside of science, I love rock climbing, traveling, birding, learning new languages, writing, and generally just being outdoors! Oh, and that's me on the right!

CO luminosity functions

Before I came to this field, there was a big mess and the community was calling for help. I came with an intention to revolutionize my field. It's yet about to happen but we're getting pretty close. The image shows two year of my work collapsed into one figure.
