Dr. Jillian M. Scudder is an Assistant Professor at Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio.

Her Ph.D thesis focused on the physics of galaxy collisions in the local universe (through both optical and radio observations), and during her postdoc at the University of Sussex, she expanded her research to more distant galaxies and a broader spectrum of wavelengths.

She is very interested in science communication and outreach, and has created her own blog in order to answer questions about space: Astroquizzical.
