WELCOME!

 
Science blinded me with science.

Science blinded me with science.

Dr. Nathalie Nguyen-Quoc Ouellette (that's me!) is an observational astrophysicist currently based out of Kingston, Canada. Here, you will find information about me, my research, my outreach activities, how to best contact me, and a smattering of other random stuff I've deemed pertinent enough to include. You'll find many things underlined throughout my website. These are all hyperlinks that I encourage you to click (for your edutainment).

Check out my blog where I'll delve into some fun space trivia, give you a behind the scenes look at what it's like to be a professional astrophysicist, talk about what's got me really excited in science news, and answer some of your questions! I'll be sure to throw in a fair amount of memes, for good measure. Everything pre-2017 was taken from my Queen's Observatory blog from my time there as a Coordinator. I'm hoping to move forward and blog more consistently!

I take science very seriously, but I try not to take myself too seriously at the same time! Science has to be approached with a rigorous work ethic and sharp critical thinking, but it's also just so much fun to do and talk about. I hope my love for space will come through here.

Science is for everyone; let me tell you about it!
