Jillian Bornak



My background is in astronomy, where I investigated dust formation in classical novae, which are explosions caused by thermonuclear runaway reactions on the surface of a white dwarf. I teach introduction to astronomy (ASTR 1010) and general physics (PHYS 2070, PHYS 1750, PHYS 2100). I've also written an informal black holes education site.

I am honored to have received the Outstanding Teacher Award and the 2015 March Shining Star Award.
