While the last several decades have seen great strides in our understanding of the universe, more powerful tools are needed if we are to ever solve its most enduring mysteries. A new observatory, which is the product of a years-long, multi-university collaboration, could help us see more with a single shot than most of today’s telescopes, enabling scientists to create a “digital movie” that captures our universe’s dynamic nature and gives us a deeper glimpse into its history. Join us on Thursday, June 23, 2022 to hear Dr. Larry Gladney, Professor of Physics at Yale University, discuss the latest efforts to improve how we study our universe. Please register for the event at bit.ly/larrygladney. To learn more about us, please visit our website at cafescipa.org or follow us on Twitter @cafescisv.
Larry Gladney is the FAS Phyllis A. Wallace Dean for Diversity and Faculty Development, Professor of Physics, and incoming FAS Dean of Science at Yale University. Dr. Gladney obtained his PhD in experimental particle physics from Stanford University in 1985. Prior to his appointment at Yale, he spent over three decades at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was most recently the Edmund J. and Louise W. Kahn Professor for Faculty Excellence in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. There, he also served as Chair of the Faculty Senate, Chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and Associate Dean for Natural Sciences in the School of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Gladney’s research lies at the intersection of experimental particle physics and cosmology where we attempt to understand the origins of and fundamental connections between matter, energy, space, and time. Currently, he is engaged in explorations of the accelerated expansion of the Universe with the Legacy Survey of Space and Time at the Vera C. Rubin Observatory, currently under construction.
