Marla Geha uses the world’s largest telescopes to study the universe’s smallest galaxies. She uses her research into these small galaxies to understand the nature of dark matter and the underlying cosmology of the universe. Geha is working to increase recruitment and retention of U.S. enlisted military veterans into undergraduate science majors through the Warrior-Scholar Project. The Warrior-Scholar Project runs weeklong college-preparatory “bootcamps” on university campuses aimed at giving enlisted veterans the skills and confidence needed to succeed in college.
