About me 

My name is Victoriya Forsythe and I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Geophysical Institute in Fairbanks, Alaska. I recently defended my PhD in Space Physics at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I have graduated from Utah Valley University with BS degree in Physics and have decided to pursue my career in academia. This website is a part of my Outreach project to support the choice of female students towards a career in physics.
