Meredith L. Rawls


I am a researcher and developer on the LSST Data Management team.

I write software that will process a deluge of images in real time when LSST begins collecting frames for a decade-long movie of the southern sky. My research includes observing weird binary stars and using them to better understand how all stars work. I hold degree in physics and astronomy from New Mexico State University, San Diego State University, and Harvey Mudd College.

Beyond astronomy I enjoy playing viola, advocating for more equity and less light pollution, and figuring out how to be a parent.
