On December 5th UWiP members had the chance to tour Dr. Keating’s astrophysics lab on campus. Brian Keating’s labs researches the cosmic microwave background and were recently recognized for detecting b-mode patterns that support the existence of gravitational waves. You can read about that discovery here (http://ucsdguardian.org/2014/11/12/ucsd-researchers-collect-cosmic-microwave-data/) and you can read more on Professor Keating’s researchhere: http://physics.ucsd.edu/~bkeating/
Brian Keating and his wife are proud supporters of UWiP, and recently made a very generous donation to the UCSD UWiP Program. We are very excited to have him as a supporter and to have had the opportunity to tour his lab.
