Join us for a Physics and Astronomy Department Colloquium as Dr. Mia Bovill presents a talk in the field of Astrophysics. Dr. Mia Bovill is an Assistant Professor of Astronomy at Texas Christian University.
Dr. Mia Sauda Bovill earned BS (2004) degrees in Physics and Astronomy at the University of Maryland before earning an MS (2006) and Ph.D. (2011) in Astronomy at the University of Maryland. Her Astronomy Ph.D. research topic was on simulations of the fossils of the first galaxies in the Local Group. After a year at the University of Texas at Austin, she received a FONDECYT Fellowship at Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile where she expanded her study of dwarf galaxies to the Local Volume as part of the Survey of Centaurus A’s Baryonic Structure and the Neighborhood Watch. After her time in Santiago, Dr. Bovill worked at the Space Telescope Science Institute on the detectability of the first stars with the James Webb Space Telescope. In the fall of 2018, Dr. Bovill joined Texas Christian University as an Assistant Professor. At TCU, she is currently continuing her research on the formation, evolution and fate of the first stars and galaxies.
