KUMPULA PHYSICS COLLOQUIUM ON 08.02.2019 AT 14.15 IN D101

The next Kumpula Physics colloquium will take place on Friday 8 February. Our speaker will be another new professor in our department, Peter Johansson. Peter is Professor of Astrophysics here in Helsinki. His research interests range from supermassive black holes to galaxy evolution. He recently received an ERC Consolidator Grant to study the dynamics of supermassive black holes in galactic-scale hydrodynamical simulations and estimate their gravitational wave signatures. In his talk, titled “The birth, life and death of astrophysical black holes”, he will tell us more about his work.

The talk will last about 30 minutes, after which there will be a cocktail reception. Welcome!
