About Me


Hey that’s me!

My name is Amber Lauer and I am a Postdoc studying Nuclear Astrophysics at Triangle Universities Nuclear Lab, Duke University. In Dec. of 2017 I completed a PhD in Physics at Lousiana State University under Catherine Deibel in the LSUNucastro lab. I attained a B.S in math in ’07, a M.S. in physics in 2011, both at Portland State University as a member of the Sanchez Nano-develpment lab.

I am also an amateur artist, seamstress, singer, and musician. My dream is to travel the world and into space, and I am inspired by science fiction like Star Trek, Star Wars, and Contact.

I am a member of the American Physical Society, Sigma Pi Sigma (the Physics Honor Society), and the Association for Computing Machinery.
