Faculty and Staff of Norwich University
Associate Professor

Astrophysicist Tabetha Hole earned her B.A. from Oberlin College and an M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

She also served on the calibration team for the Chandra X-ray Observatory and as a postdoctoral fellow at East Tennessee State University. Her research investigates supernova structure and stellar winds. Many of her research interests have focused on using simulations and novel observational parameters to explore the otherwise-unobservable structure of small and distant things.

At Norwich, she has continued working with students on projects investigating the polarization of light escaping through the outer layers of supernovae—exploding stars—and on understanding the density and velocity structure of the stream of charged particles accelerated from the surface of massive stars known as stellar winds. Hole has taught Norwich courses at all levels, including Astronomy: Stars and Galaxies, University Physics I, Classical Mechanics, and Electricity and Magnetism. As a professor, Hole is committed to quality teaching based on pedagogical research and inclusive mentoring to help all students learn and succeed.
