We would like to introduce you to a new series.
This Physics Lecture series is aimed to inform and educate about the research of underrepresented researchers in physics and their journey navigating through issues they have faced.
Our first talk will be on March 16th, from 4-5pm EDT. The talk will be given by Theoretical High Energy Physicist, Professor A.W. Peet from U of T Department of Physics.
Title: My journey as a theoretical physicist: black holes, quantum information, gender, and disability.
Abstract: In this talk, I will give an accessible introduction to my research in theoretical high-energy physics at the intersection between black holes, quantum information, and string theory. I will also share some stories about sexism, ableism, and transphobia in academia, and suggest ways we can all help make physics more welcoming to underrepresented groups.
