On Wednesday July 13, 2016 I joined the crew from HOT97's Ebro in the Morning to talk science, racism, and teaching the truth about Black history in schools. Since Ebro's show is popular with Black and brown people in New York City, it was a great collaboration on outreach to underserved communities!
Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics Seminar
Title: From Condensed Matter to Cosmology: Axions and Inflatons in the Early Universe Speaker: Chanda Prescod-Weinstein (University of Seattle) Date: May 2, 2016
As of 2010, women of color represented less than 6% of faculty members with STEM doctorates at four-year colleges and universities. In this webinar hosted by the Anna Julia Cooper Center at Wake Forest University, I moderate a discussion between women of color about the challenges we face in the STEM professoriate and the future we want. (April 27, 2017)
With fellow astrophysicist Dr. Jedidah Isler! "We spend some sacred time with Dr. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein talking about how to speak truth to power, how to take care of yourself in the struggle and how to learn more about ALL the things. Watch this wide-ranging, informative and very insightful season premiere of #VanguardSTEM."
The Hubble Space Telescope has shown us distant galaxies and planets orbiting other stars, deepening our knowledge of the Universe. Nobel Prize winner John Mather works on Hubble's replacement, the James Webb Space Telescope. He believes we are in a golden age of astronomy. We junior PhD scientists were not so convinced.
While I was working toward my PhD, I was interviewed about how I became interested in physics.
From the fall of 2015, at about the 36 minute mark, I gave a quick lunch time presentation about reheating after inflation and why astronomers should care.
