Alicia Soderberg - Research Associate
Alicia is currently is in the beginning of her five year fellowship as a Hubble postdoc and Carnegie-Princeton fellow at Princeton University.
She recently had the good fortune to be the first to observe the supernova (SN 2008D). The supernova occurred a few weeks after another supernova from the same galaxy. To see two supernova's from the same galaxy within a matter of weeks is very unusual- 1:10, 000 chance. Typically a galaxy will produce one supernova every 100 years.
