Dr. Kathryn Devine

Associate Professor of Physics, College of Idaho

I am originally from Rochester, Minnesota. As an undergraduate, I studied physics at Carleton College, a small liberal arts college in Minnesota. I went on to receive my Ph.D. in Astronomy from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin. As part of my graduate studies, I spent two years working at the National Radio Astronomy's Very Large Array telescope in Socorro, New Mexico. For my graduate research I examined star-forming environments in infrared dark clouds (very dense concentrations of dust and gas in the Milky Way).

After I completed my graduate studies, I moved to Boise, Idaho to join the physics faculty at the College of Idaho. For fun, I enjoy many of the outdoor activities that Idaho has in abundance, including hiking, skiing, and climbing.
