Miss Wanda Feng is an Astrophysics PhD student and NSF Graduate Research Fellow in the School of Earth and Space Exploration, Arizona State University, interested in debris disks around white dwarfs and Type Ia supernovae. She spent four years living deliberately in western Massachusetts, where she attended Smith College and had the distinct privilege of  studying T Tauri star formation with Professor Suzan Edwards. When not working on T Tauri stars at Smith, Wanda developed an optical refractometer, counted fossils, and interned at the NASA Johnson Space Center as well as the Applied Physics Lab. Before these adventures, Wanda was born and raised in Edison, New Jersey, which is also the birthplace of the light bulb.
