Professor Priya Natarajan (1993) has undergraduate and Master’s degrees from MIT and did her graduate work in Theoretical Astrophysics at the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge. She was the first woman in Astrophysics to be elected a Fellow of Trinity. Her research in cosmology uses gravitational lensing to map and probe dark matter in the universe; while her research in black hole physics focuses on the formation and fuelling of supermassive black holes.
The recipient of many awards and honours for her work, she is also deeply invested in the public dissemination of science and the scientific process.
The lecture begins at 6pm sharp and will be followed by a reception at 7pm in the Old Combination Room.
