Every term, FemPhys invites a stellar individual to share their thoughts, lecture-style. This term, Dr. Amanda Peet from the University of Toronto, a string theorist interested in black holes and quantum gravity, will share their musings on diversity and inclusion in their field. We'll listen, have some lunch, and ask Dr. Peet a few questions.
A.W. Peet is a Professor of Physics and a Fellow of Trinity College at the University of Toronto. They hold a B.Sc.(Hons) from the University of Canterbury and a Ph.D. from Stanford University. Their awards include a Radcliffe Fellowship from Harvard and an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship. They grew up in the South Pacific island nation of Aotearoa/New Zealand, and have a little web site at ap.io/home/. They have lived experience of misogyny, ableism, and transphobia.
This event falls under FemPhys' Code of Conduct. Please be respectful and considerate of others. Please note that Dr. Peet uses they/them pronouns.
Everyone is welcome.
