This is a talk held during the regular colloquium series (usually Tuesdays at 4pm).

The Renaissance of Astrophysics: a landscape of opportunities in the era of Time Domain Multi-Messenger investigations

Tuesday, January 18, 2022 - 11:15am
Prof. Raffaella Margutti (UC Berkeley)

Astronomical transients are signposts of catastrophic events in space, including the most extreme stellar deaths, stellar tidal disruptions by supermassive black holes, and mergers of compact objects.

The Production and Transmission of Lyman-alpha Photons in High-redshift Galaxies and the Implications for the Escape of Ionizing Radiation

Tuesday, February 22, 2022 - 11:00am
Prof. Naveen Reddy (UC Riverside)

The epoch of reionization (EoR) was a landmark event, when radiation from the first stars and accreting black holes permeated the intergalactic medium (IGM) and ionized hydrogen.

High-Cadence Synthetic Observations and Neural Networks in the Era of JWST

Tuesday, February 1, 2022 - 11:00am
Dr. Kirk Barrow (Harvard)

As astronomers near the commissioning of the extremely large telescopes, the Rubin Observatory, as well as new space-based observatories like the Roman Space Telescope and JWST to peer more deeply into our Universe, our community is challenged to develop a theoretical and modeling framework to ch
