Nicole Nesvadba, directrice de recherche at the CNRS, is an expert in galaxy evolution based at the Laboratoire Lagrange at the Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur in Nice, France. Her main research interest are the rapid, vigorous, and transformative phases of galaxy evolution where large amounts of energy are rapidly being injected into the interstellar gas of galaxies, like starburst or sites of strong AGN feedback.
Ananth Tenneti - I completed my PhD in Physics at Carnegie Mellon University in December 2016. I have studied intrinsic alignments of galaxies using cosmological hydrodynamical simulations. Intrinsic alignments are an important astrophysical systematic in the weak lensing analysis for upcoming surveys such as the LSST (Rubin) and Euclid.
Serena Perrotta is an Assistant Project Scientist at the Center for Astrophysics & Space Sciences in the Department of Physics at the University of California San Diego. She received her B.S. and M.S. in Astrophysics from the University of Bologna (Italy) and her Ph.D. in Astrophysics from the International School for Advanced Studies (Trieste, Italy) in 2016.
Nicolas Cowan is an Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair in Planetary Climate at McGill University. His group uses telescopes and models to study the climates of exoplanets. Cowan was previously an Assistant Professor of Astronomy at Amherst College, and a CIERA Postdoctoral Fellow at Northwestern University.
Talk Title and Abstract
Come join Women in Physics and Astronomy for a live viewing of the University of Waterloo's International Women's Day High Tea Social. This event will be hosted at the Graduate House (200 University Ave W.) and is a great opportunity to meet fellow physicists and enjoy some delicious snacks!
If you have interest in attending, please fill out the survey below, and register for the event with the link provided.
Tom Rose is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Waterloo focusing on radio observations of massive galaxies and galaxy clusters. His principal work looks at the shadows of molecular gas clouds cast against the bright active galactic nuclei at the centres of these galaxies. This can tell us about the properties of the gas and how it relates to supermassive black hole accretion.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
