Amanda Bayless

Hello. My name is Amanda Bayless and I am currently a research scientist at Southwest Research Institute.


Dr. Amanda Bayless is a Research Scientist in the Department of Space Science at SwRI. Her current duties involve numerical modeling of various astrophysical systems. Her past research has been in observations of low-mass stellar objects and X-ray binaries and numerical modeling of their stellar parameters. She has also instrumentation experience working for CERN and Fermilab while at MSU, and on the HETDEX project at UTA.
She was twice awarded the Ruth and Clifford Smith Fellowship for Academics (2004 & 2005) and was twice granted the Reginald F. Buller Award for Service (2004 & 2005) while at SDSU. She was also the first place winner in the Graduate Level Physics and Mathematics Division of the California State University Research Competition in 2006. She is a lifetime member of the Sigma Pi Sigma Physics Honors Society.
