The first talk of the 2016-2017 season is on September 13 at 7:30PM in Peyton Hall on the Princeton University campus. The talk is on “Neutrinos: Their discovery, detection, and future prospects” by Princeton University Postdoctoral Fellow Dr. Jia Liu.

Dr. Liu’s work currently focuses on weak lensing non-Gaussian statistics, using N-body ray tracing simulations as a tool to study the large scale structure of our universe. The ultimate goal of this work is to understand the nature of dark energy, the total mass of neutrinos, and other cosmological parameters.

Dr. Liu also spends time observing AGNs at optical telescopes, hoping to find super-massive black-hole binaries!

Prior to the September meeting there will be a meet the speaker dinner held at Winberies, Palmer Square in Princeton at 6PM. If you wish to join please email program@princetonastronomy.org no later than noon on September 13.

Please come and join us for what will be an informative and interesting talk!
