Basic Science Lights the Way: Rising Stars of Berkeley Mathematical and Physical Sciences

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 - 5:00pm

UC Berkeley has a renowned history in the sciences of cutting-edge, curiosity-driven research that results in paradigm-shifting discovery — fundamentally changing our understanding of nature, the universe, and ourselves. This tradition continues on campus as strong as ever. If you share our curiosity, the College of Letters & Science’s Division of Biological Sciences and Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences invite you to the Spring 2021 series of enlightening virtual discussions, featuring several of our brilliant faculty and students.

Rising Stars of Berkeley Mathematical and Physical Sciences

From the search for Earth-like planets to seeking knowledge of past climates on Earth, Berkeley’s early-career faculty in the physical sciences push the boundaries of basic research and teaching in their fields. Hear from professors in four MPS departments about how their work lights the way.

This talk features Courtney Dressing, Alexander Paulin, Daniel Stopler, and Norman Yao, moderated by Frances Hellman, Dean, Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences
