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 discuss diversity and inclusion in the field.
We'll listen, have some lunch, and ask Dr. Peet a few questions.
Everyone is welcome.

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.
