Speaker: Jason Terry (University of Georgia) Title: Analyzing Planet Forming Environments with Deep Learning Abstract: Protoplanetary discs - the birthplaces of planets - offer unique opportunities to advance our theories of planet formation. Observing these rich physical environments reveals mechanisms and conditions that lead to stellar systems, but the overall process is still poorly understood.
Speaker: Sukanya Chakrabarti (University of Alabama, Huntsville) Title: Towards Precision Measurement of Dark Matter Abstract: For more than a century now, our inference of the mass distributions (including dark matter) in galaxies has been based on modeling the positions and velocities of stars, i.e., using kinematic analyses, which assume equilibrium. These kinematic estimates can be
