Subject: Unexplored Cross Sections: A Physicist’s Dip into the Art World
NOTE: Due to flight delay, Colloquium has been rescheudled on Thursday, December 11

The discoveries and wonder of science have great capacity to inspire. I will discuss how as a physicist and professor at an art and design university, I have been able to share that inspiration with students from diverse backgrounds and use it to build cross-sections between the physics and art world. At the center of my efforts is the desire to find new ways to communicate important lessons from science and advocate for a more evidenced-based approach to solving problems in society. I argue that by breaking down barriers between art and science, we can better propagate the scientific way of seeing the world.
