Milwaukee Shapes the Universe (Virtual)
Wednesday, November 17, 2021
7:00 - 8:00 p.m. CT
Milwaukee Shapes the Universe is a virtual series focused on space research and technologies being innovated in Milwaukee. UW-Milwaukee researchers will share their latest technologies and ideas around space tech and innovation.
This week’s featured speaker is UW-Milwaukee physics professor Dr. Prasenjit Guptasarma, whose research involves unconventional magnetism and superconductivity, quantum materials, and materials for energy sustainability. Dr. Guptasarma’s team is investigating the feasibility of creating a magnetic shield to protect future interplanetary travelers from the deadly galactic cosmic radiation present in outer space.
As a Condensed Matter Physicist and a Materials Scientist, Guptasarma seeks to elucidate the fundamental quantum physics behind unusual electronic and magnetic properties of materials. His research group’s work helps predict, discover, and commercialize new materials with wide-ranging applications in advanced electronic devices.
Milwaukee Shapes the Universe is a partnership between the UWM Planetarium and UWM Lubar Entrepreneurship Center. The program will be moderated by Planetarium Director Jean Creighton.
