Chanda Prescod-Weinstein

Special guest

Dr. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein (she/her) is an Assistant Professor of Physics and Core Faculty Member in Women’s Studies at the University of New Hampshire. One of fewer than 100 Black women to have received a Ph.D. in physics from an American university, she is the author of The Disordered Cosmos, a monthly columnist at New Scientist and a contributing columnist at Physics World.

Dr. Prescod-Weinstein's work lives at the intersection of particle physics and astrophysics, and while primarily a theoretical researcher, she maintains strong ties to astronomy. Using ideas from both physics and astronomy, she responds to deep questions about how everything in the universe got to be the way it is. She also does research on feminist science studies, and believes we all have the right to know the universe.
