"Faces of Physics" Series will feature former Center member, Natalia Lewandowska


Hosted by the Marshall University Society of Physics Students, the "Faces of Physics" lecture series will feature Natalia Lewandowska, PhD.

Natalia was a member of the Center for Gravitational Waves and Cosmology before moving into a Visiting Assistant Professor position at Haverford College in Haverford, PA.

The free and virtual series is open to the public through a livestream and will allow for a Question and Answer session with the speaker. The livestream is appropriate for all ages. The goal of the event is the highlight the work of researchers from underrepresented groups to promote inclusion and inspire the next generation of scientists to see a place for themselves in the exciting field of physics.

Her session, scheduled for November 18th at 7:00 PM EST, is titled "The Case of the Perfect Clocks in the Sky" that will discuss mysterious outer space clocks called pulsars. As an astrophysicist/astronomer, she studies the functionality and evolution of stars that are known as pulsars. Her research focuses on single radio and multi wavelength emission from pulsars and developing new approaches on how to search for correlations between them with the ultimate goal of learning how they work.
