Physics Conference Inspires Women
A regional APS Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics was held on campus and at PPPL the weekend of Jan. 13-15, bringing together more than 200 undergraduate women interested in physics and careers in the field. Urry, a professor of astrophysics at Yale whose research focuses on active galaxies that host supermassive black holes in their centers, was one of the plenary speakers at the conference, which focused on giving young women the tools to stay in physics and other STEM fields. More than 200 women attended the event.
