8063 Cristinathomas           Discovered 1977 Dec. 7 by S. J. Bus at Palomar.
Cristina A. Thomas (b. 1982) is a postdoctoral research scientist at Northern Arizona University. Her 2009 Ph.D. thesis at MIT investigated the compositional links between NEAs and meteorites in conjunction with tracing their origin to main belt source locations.
