Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy
Ziv Epstein is a Senior Math and Computer Science from Boulder, Colorado. He has seen the planetarium through its infancy and helped coordinate a new generation of planetarium operators. He did a Media Studies senior thesis in the planetarium.
Adam is a junior at Pomona College who majors in Physics / Astrophysics. He is from Portland, OR and has been involved with the planetarium since its installation during summer of 2015. He enjoys running, playing the trumpet, and officiating soccer in his spare time.
I am Elvis Kahoro, and I'm from Georgia. I like to see galaxies and nebulae in the planetarium. I'm currently majoring in Computer Science. I enjoy working on games, mobile apps, and volunteering in clean technology.

I'm a sophomore at Pomona College majoring in computer science. I haven't planned any shows yet, but they will be worth the wait. I love road biking, and I play on the 5C Squash Club.
I am a freshman at Pomona from Seattle, Washington. I am interested in majoring in physics/astronomy and/or computer science. Also, I am also on the Pomona-Pitzer baseball team. My first planetarium project will be about exoplanets and how they are discovered.
Hi! My name is Julie Korsmeyer and I’m a sophomore at Scripps College. I plan on majoring in Chemistry, and am considering minoring in Astronomy, with the hopes of going into Astrochemistry. I am really excited to work at the planetarium, and would love to do a project on chemical distributions in space (via stellar life cycles) or on satellite exploration missions by NASA. I’m also a manager for Scripps Challah for Hunger, a tutor for HMC’s CS5 course, a Scripps Peer Mentor, and a mentor for the AISS class at Keck. I love to read, bake desserts, do STEM education outreach, and fly planes.
I like exploring human's relationships with the natural world. My planetarium projects attempt to highlight the many dynamic systems that we are a part of, and the ability that we have to live within them or disrupt them based on our every day decisions. I am an environmental analysis major, with a specific interest in sustainably built environments. In my free time, I like to rock climb, mess around in the wood shop, or slap bongo drums repetitively.
