As the faculty hiring season comes to an end, we are excited that PMA will be welcoming two new faculty to campus.
Linda Ye will join as Assistant Professor of Physics starting in Summer 2023. Linda is a quantum matter experimentalist with broad expertise in materials growth and characterization.
Elias Most will join as Assistant Professor in Theoretical Astrophysics starting Fall 2023. Elias is a theorist and computational astrophysicist working in general relativity and gravitational wave research.
A multi-institution collaboration that includes a Caltech-led imaging team has generated the first image of the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy. This result provides conclusive evidence that the body is indeed a black hole and yields valuable clues about the workings of such massive objects, which are thought to reside at the center of most galaxies.
