Hailing from New York City under some of the most light polluted skies, Judy Schmidt can often be found with her nose in an archive rather than outdoors. An expert image processor and amateur astronomer, she works almost exclusively with professionally obtained, publicly available data like that of the famous Hubble Space Telescope.
With a keen scientific mind and deep regard for the vast, distant, and often invisible cosmos, Judy loves to share the beauty that can be found buried in the treasure troves of public data.
