I am Andreia “Dreia” Carrillo, Filipina astrophysicist. I am from the Bulacan province in the Philippines, an hour away from Manila, but am now based in Austin as a first year graduate student in University of Texas. My work involves extragalactic stellar populations previously with Eric Bell in University of Michigan, and now with Shardha Jogee in UT Austin. Learn more about my research on the dwarf galaxy dw1335-29 and my future research on nearby galaxies in my Research page.
In UM, I have been extensively involved in outreach through the Astronomy Department, and as part of the Student Astronomical Society (SAS). SAS holds biweekly open houses that include planetarium shows, observing, and demos. Do check them out if you are in Ann Arbor! Their website is also included in my Links page.
In the Philippines, I have also worked with Rizal Technological University’s Department of Earth and Space Sciences, both for research and outreach. Through this I have been connected with other Filipino astronomers, one of whom is Jerome Pitogo de Leon who put up edxplore.net. If you are a Filipino interested in studying abroad for undergrad and graduate studies, or in attending international conferences, this website is extremely helpful for you.
When I am not working on astronomy-related stuff, I like doing song covers, playing the guitar and piano, cooking, catching up on sleep, and watching Netflix. I also love to travel because there is so much beauty in this world, so many new perspectives I am eager to see and learn about.
