Sarah Marie Bruno
4th year PhD Candidate in Physics
Sarah Marie studies observational cosmology and works on two cosmology telescopes in the Chilean desert that measure the Cosmic Microwave Background in order to learn about the nature of the early universe and how it has evolved over time. As Health and Life officer, her primary focus has been mental health awareness. She led an initiative to organize and run a Graduate Mental Health week in November 2018, and subsequently a much larger-scale campus-wide Mental Health Awareness Month in November 2019. She is currently working on an even bigger and better Mental Health Month for November 2020. She also serves on the Student Health Plan Advisory Council where she advocates for graduate students’ concerns regarding health plan policies.
