Lawrence Edmond, IV

Graduate Student, University of California, Berkeley

Lawrence Edmond, IV is a rising senior at the University of California – Berkeley studying astronomy and astrophysics. During his time at Flatiron, Lawrence, in collaboration with Dr. Maria Okounkova, used the Spectral Einstein Code (SpEC) to create geodesic simulations near merging black holes. Currently, Lawrence is researching stellar nucleosynthesis in the Milky Way Galaxy through numerical simulations of the production of Manganese-55 from Type Ia Supernovae in collaboration with Dr. Ken Shen from the UC Berkeley Astronomy Department. He is also a member of the National Society of Black Physicists (NSBP), a lab mentor for the Undergraduate Laboratory at Berkeley (ULAB), and a member of the Astronomy Scholars Program at UC Berkeley.
