CURRICULUM VITAE

JJ Hermes
I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Warwick, in central England, where I study pulsations and binary effects in white dwarf stars. For more information about my research interests, click here.

I completed my PhD at the University of Texas at Austin in August 2013, where I was fortunate to make many discoveries during more than 220 nights spent at the McDonald Observatory. More details about my research can be found from my observer profile, as well as a 30-minute interview I did with KRTS, the NPR affiliate for far west Texas based in Marfa; the interview can be streamed online.

I have also worked as a journalist, serving as editor-in-chief of The Daily Texan from June 2006 to May 2007 and for a year as a reporter for The Chronicle of Higher Education in Washington, D.C. I maintain a Web site of primary documents I have collected over the years at www.fretna.org.

I served as a TA for several courses at UT-Austin:
      Fall 2012: Winget's AST 301 (Introduction to Astronomy)
      Fall 2011: Winget's AST 301 (Introduction to Astronomy)
      Spring 2011: Montgomery's AST 210K (FRI White Dwarf Stream)
      Fall 2010: Winget's AST 301 (Introduction to Astronomy)
      Fall 2010: Hermes's AST 152M (Stellar Astronomy Laboratory)
      Summer 2010: Yoachim's AST 392G (Observing Techniques in Astronomy)
      Spring 2010: Montgomery's AST 210K (FRI White Dwarf Stream)
