2014 Annie Jump Cannon Award

Annie Jump Canon
I’m very pleased and excited to have been chosen by AAS as the 2014 recipient of the Annie Jump Cannon Award. It’s certainly a great honor to be in the company of such excellent women who have all contributed so much to the field over the years!

Dr. Cannon herself performed ground-breaking work on the observation and classification of stellar spectra. As a fellow stellar spectroscopist whose research includes continued work on the spectral types and classifications of massive stars pioneered by Dr. Cannon so many years ago, I look forward to the challenge of living up to the name of this award in the coming years!
