JWST Master Class

In Nov 2019, I participated in the first JWST Master Class training workshop at STScI, which provided a deep dive into proposal planning tools, observing modes, and science use cases.
I'm excited to be part of a team of postdocs and grad students who are holding two all-day JWST proposal planning workshops in Central Texas, designed to help you become familiar with JWST proposal planning tools via hands-on experience. Please join us at UT Austin on January 31, or Texas A&M University on February 21!
