Assistant Professor of Physics, University of Maryland, Baltimore County

Dr. Meyer was previously a postdoctoral fellow at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, MD, which manages the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and upcoming James Webb Space Telescope. While at STScI, Dr. Meyer worked with the HST Proper Motions group to measure, for the first time, the superluminal motions of several nearby extragalactic jets as seen by Hubble. She also used the Very Large Array (VLA), HST, the Chandra X-ray observatory, and the Fermi gamma-ray telescope to measure the speed of jets from black holes.
