Interests: Professor McKinstry joined the Department in Spring 2007. She has taught courses in physical science, astronomy, and physics and also some associated laboratory sections. Her research interests have ranged from variable stars to galactic dynamics. Outside interests include mythology (especially constellation myths from around the world) and archaeoastronomy. She has never owned a telescope because she got spoiled from using various colleges' and universities' 0.6+ meter Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes and CCD equipment. In her spare time, she likes to read and sew.
