Dr. Justin Vandenbroucke - Neutrino Astronomy at the South Pole
Dr. Vandenbroucke uses innovative instruments around the world to detect high energy particles from the cosmos. Understanding the smallest particles in the universe is necessary to understanding the largest objects in the universe and vice versa. Vandenbroucke received his Ph.D. in Physics at UC-Berkely in 2009. He was a Kavli Fellow at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and a NASA Einstein Fellow at Stanford University before joining the UW faculty in 2013.
Don't forget to visit the Dome Theater during social hour for a special showing of Chasing the Ghost Particle at 6:45 p.m.!
