Call in to speak with the host
Cosmic Log's Alan Boyle and Space Studies Institute's Robin Snelson explore the often-volatile landscape of science, politics and policy. This week's guest: George Djorgovski: Professor of Astronomy; Co-Director of the Center for Advanced Computing Research at Caltech; Director of the Meta-Institute for Computational Astrophysics; a founder of the Virtual Observatory concept; and one-time Chair of the US Nat'l Virtual Observatory Science Definition Team. His e-Scientific interests include definition and development of the universal methodology, tools, and frameworks for data-intensive and computationally-enabled science. His astrophysical interests include digital sky surveys, exploration of observable parameter spaces, formation and early evolution of quasars, galaxies, and other cosmic structures.
It's good to talk.
