Humanity has been trying to understand the cosmos for centuries. Despite the advent of new means that help us peer further into time and distance than ever before, there is still much we have left to learn. Our speaker this month, Dr. Anthony Aguirre, is a theoretical cosmologist whose research is dedicated to answering some of these enduring mysteries. Please join us for an enthralling installment of virtual Café Scientifique on Thursday, May 20, 2021, as Dr. Aguirre discusses his work and takes us on a tour of the universe and our civilization – past, present, and future. Please register for the event at bit.ly/anthonyaguirre. To learn more about us, please visit our website at cafescipa.org or follow us on Twitter @cafescisv.

Dr. Aguirre received a degree in mathematics and physics from Brown University, and earned his Ph.D. in Astronomy from Harvard University before joining the UC Santa Cruz faculty in 2003. He holds the Faggin Family Presidential Chair for the Physics of Information at UCSC. His research addresses a variety of topics in theoretical cosmology, including the early universe and inflation, gravity physics, and the foundations of quantum and statistical mechanics. He is a co-founder of the Foundational Questions and Future of Life Institutes.
