Join us May 5th for our the next Full Moon-th Meetup where we’ll chat with Dr. Viviana Acquaviva – Professor of Physics in the City University of New York, and a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Computational Astrophysics of the Flatiron Institute. Dr. Acquaviva is also the co-chair for the 2023 Vatican Observatory Summer School!
Our tradition of hosting online meetups with our Sacred Space Astronomy members and the Vatican Observatory staff, scholars and friends during the Full Moon in Tucson (or thereabout) continues on Friday May 5th at 12:00 Noon ET (9:00 AM Tucson time).
We’ll also have the latest news of the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope*.
This meetup is a perk for our Sacred Space Astronomy subscribers- we’ll be holding our regularly scheduled online meetup where you get to chat with each other, and astronomers and scientists from the Vatican Observatory!
Dr. Acquaviva is an astrophysicist with a strong interest in data science. She received a Bachelor degree in Physics from the University of Pisa, and a Ph. D. in Astrophysics from the International School of Advanced Studies in Trieste. She’s held postdoctoral positions at Princeton University and Rutgers University before joining the faculty at the City University of New York in 2012.
She wrote a textbook on Machine Learning for Physics and Astronomy, which has been published by Princeton University Press.
In 2021, she was named one of 13 “Tecnovisionarie” Italian Women in AI by Women&Tech. In 2020, Wired (Italy) listed her as one of 50 women who are doing the history of Computer Science. In 2018, she was named one of Italy’s 50 most influential Women in Tech by InspiringFifty.
Dr. Acquaviva is passionate about supporting women and other minorities in the pursuit of STEM careers, and has been a research mentor for over 25 undergraduate and graduate students. She has been widely recognized as a role model for women in science
