Professor Reshmi Mukherjee co-chairing the CDY initiative for understanding the Physics of the Extreme Accelerators in our Universe

The Columbia-DIAS-Yale (CDY) Initiative 2021 is a series of seminars/meetings established by Columbia University (New York), Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (Dublin), and Yale University (New Haven). The initiative will sponsor several activities: a series of introductory lectures on current topics (remotely in 2021), biennial summer schools (for PhD students and early career researchers), focused mini-workshops, and joint research projects. The first summer school is planned for 2022 in Dublin, and subsequently in the New York area.

A new look on the Universe

The prototype Schwarzschild-Couder Telescope at the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory flies...to the other side of the Atlantic! Together with Dr. Serena Loporchio from INFN and University of Bari, Dr. Capasso will show high school students from Puglia, Italy, the beauty of gamma-ray astronomy and how science brings us closer, no matter how distant the countries or how hard the times! (The seminar will be held in Italian)
