The Indiana Astrophysics Meeting is designed to bring faculty from across the state together to share their research endeavors. This will provide an opportunity for exchanging ideas and hopefully foster collaborations.
This year’s meeting will be held at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. The day will consist of 10 contributed talks, a poster session, and conclude with a keynote address by Dr. Vrtilek.
Dr. Vrtilek is an Astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, MA. She has an undergraduate degree in Physics from MIT and a PhD in Astronomy from Columbia University. She has been awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship by the American Association of University Women and a Science Fellowship by the Radcliffe Bunting Institute. Her areas of interest include the physics of accretion disks and jets, multi wavelength studies of X-ray binaries and planetary nebulae, science education, and public outreach.
We encourage faculty to submit abstracts for contributed talks. Additionally, faculty and students are encouraged to consider contributing poster abstracts. The Indiana Astrophysics Meeting will also serve as an opportunity for students, both undergraduate and graduate, to interact with faculty and students from other institutions from around the state.
