Riverside Astronomical Society Meeting Tonght

Tonight’s meeting will include a talk by Lauren Pearce

Lauren Pearce, PhD student in astroparticle physics at UCLA

Dark matter is one of the most mysterious aspects of the universe we’ve discovered so far, but why do scientists think that it is out there? Furthermore, why do scientists think that it’s some exotic new particle? We’ll discuss the answers to these questions, and then talk about a few exciting possibilities as to what type of particle it can be. We’ll conclude with a brief discussion of experiments that hope to discover the answer to this question.

Lauren Pearce is currently completing her Ph.D. in astroparticle physics at UCLA. She is working with Professor Alex Kusenko on astrophysical implications of non-topological solitons (a self-reinforcing solitary wave that maintains its shape while it travels at constant speed) in beyond the Standard Model particle physics; in particular, she has published on the possibility of solitosynthesis-induced phase transitions in the early universe.
