Jason Harris

Jason Harris is a postdoctoral researcher at the Space Telescope Science Institute.
He was born in northern Illinois, but managed to escape to the University of Arizona for his undergraduate work. He found Steward Observatory to be an excellent environment for learning the art and science of observational astronomy.

In 1995, having earned B.S. degrees in physics and astronomy, Jason headed to the University of California, Santa Cruz for graduate school. His string of institutional good fortune continued: the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics at UCSC was an extremely exciting and rewarding place to be a graduate student. He completed his Ph.D. thesis ("Stellar Populations in the Magellanic Clouds") in December, 2000.

The position at STScI is his first postdoctoral appointment.
