Professor Haynes is one of the leaders of the Cornell-led CCAT project, a submillimeter telescope being built at an altitude of 18,400 feet in the high Atacama Desert of northern Chile. In this PBS interview, she talks about the telescope, the site and the science it will enable.
Prof. Haynes is the co-PI of the ALFALFA survey, including the Undergraduate ALFALFA Team. The Cornell ExtraGalactic Group observes a lot with the Arecibo telescope -- Perhaps you saw this telescope in the films "Golden Eye" or "Contact".
Our work on Fast Radio Bursts has been highlighted on the cover of Nature both in 2017 and in 2018. Articles about the work appeared in the New York Times (in 2017 and in 2018), the Washington Post (2017, and 2018), as well as many other outlets. One of the co-authors of our 2017 paper was an undergraduate summer student in the Cornell REU program!
