Dr. Angela Speck - Biography
(professor)
Named after the iconic Angela Davis, she likes bright colors, is a nerd at heart, and has wanted to be an astronaut since she was 5 years old. Originally from Yorkshire (England) she went to college in London where she was able to pursue her childhood dreams by majoring in astrophysics. After a brief stint as a r&d technician in a Lancashire company run by crazy new-age hippies, she returned to London and completed a PhD in astronomy. Now the Director of Astronomy at MU, she continues to research and teach astrophysics and to share her passion for all things extra-terrestrial. While she loves living in Columbia, sometimes she still gets cravings for good curry and unadulterated Wensleydale cheese.
