Bela is a PhD candidate at the University of California, Irvine where she studies observational cosmology. She is working on two upcoming surveys, the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument and the Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and Time, both of which seek to investigate the dynamical behavior of dark energy. Her interest in science communication stems from a desire to dispel fears people may have in their ability to understand or participate in science. In addition to her research she is involved in mentoring undergraduates in physics and has written for The Loh Down on Science on NPR.
