HORIZONS 2019 – David Kaiser, Ph.D.
February 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
David Kaiser, Ph.D.,
Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor of Physics and Professor
of the History of Science
Quantum Jitters in the Sky: The Big Bang, Cosmic Inflation,
and the Latest Observations
David Kaiser has been featured in Science, Nature, the New York Times, and the New Yorker magazine, as well as on NOVA television programs, National Public Radio, and the BBC. His research interests include early-universe cosmology and foundations of quantum theory. Many types of evidence suggest that our universe underwent a very brief period of rapid, violent expansion, doubling in size every trillion-trillion-trillionth of a second, in a period known as “cosmic inflation.” Dr. Kaiser will discuss how recent measurements of cosmic microwave background radiation have provided insights into the quantum state of the universe during its earliest moments.
