Maunakea Astronomy: Discoveries from our Own Backyard

Location: Science and Technology Building, Room 108

In this free public talk, Dr. Scott Fisher will speak about the observatories atop Maunakea, some of the most exciting recent results from them, what it is like
to work as a staff scientist at a modern, large-aperture telescope, and how astronomy is taught at a large public university like the University of Oregon.

Dr. Fisher is a very energetic and engaging speaker who will use images and videos that are appropriate for all ages and all levels of astronomy knowledge. He is the Director for Undergraduate Studies at the University of Oregon Department of Physics, teaches introductory-level astronomy courses and runs an astronomical observatory. He worked at the National Science Foundation and at the Gemini
Observatory as an instrument scientist and member of the Gemini outreach team.

Please join us for this informative and exciting presentation!
