Jill Tarter is an American astronomer known for her work with the SETI
institute and the search for extra terrestrial intelligence. She served as the
Director for Project Phoenix, the SETI Institute's privately funded
continuation of the Targeted Search portion of NASA's High Resolution Microwave
Survey, and holds the Bernard M. Oliver Chair for SETI. In her research
she has melded together old and new engineering skills with a knowledge of the
observable universe, in order to conduct thorough observations of the sky
through a set of narrowband and pulse sensitive filters never before systematically
employed by astronomers.
