Women in Astronomy Lunch Association (WALA)


The Women in Astronomy Lunch Association or WALA is an informal lunch meeting open to all women in the department.  Each meeting is loosely centered around a topic of relevance to women in STEM.  We currently meet in Room 500.

If you would like to receive notices for upcoming meetings, please email Aurora Kesseli (aurorak), Sierra Grant (sierrag) or Anneliese Rilinger (amr5) for more information.

Upcoming Events (Spring 2018):

We’ll be holding our regular monthly meetings this semester.  In addition, we’ll be having WALA sessions with seminar speakers and hosting a coffee/tea session with prospective graduate students.

We’re excited to host representatives from Julia Computing for a beginner tutorial focused this February!
