AAAP’s next meeting and lecture will be on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. in Peyton Hall. Our guest speaker will be Institute for Advanced Studies’ Post-Doc Vera Gluscevic. Dr. Gluscevic’s research focuses on using the cosmic microwave background to test physical theories, including those invoked to explain dark energy and inflation. She is also investigating a range of other topics, such as the direct detection of dark matter, probes of reionization, and the origins of magnetic fields in the universe.
She was born and grew up in Belgrade, Serbia, where she majored in astrophysics at the Faculty for Mathematics. She moved to Pasadena, California in 2007, for a PhD program at Caltech. After graduating, she moved to Princeton for a postdoc at the Institute for Advanced Study, starting in the fall of 2013.
Beginning in January, Peyton Hall will be under renovations, so we will be meeting in other lecture halls on campus. In January, we will meet in Green Hall. Please watch future meeting announcements for new meeting locations.
