“Exploring the Cosmos with JWST”
Prof. James Bullock, UC Irvine, Physics & Astronomy Dept.
About Our Speaker:
Professor James Bullock became the 9th Dean of the UCI School of Physical Sciences in 2019. He recently served as the chair of the User Committee for the James Webb Space Telescope, which is poised to succeed the Hubble Space Telescope as the most powerful space telescope in history. His research focuses on understanding how galaxies, including the Milky Way and its Local Group of galaxies emerged from the primordial universe. Dean Bullock received a B.S. in both Physics and Math from The Ohio State University and a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of California, Santa Cruz. After postdoctoral positions at The Ohio State University and Harvard University, he came to UC Irvine as an Assistant Professor in 2004. He was elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2008. Professor Bullock has been honored as a Chancellor’s Fellow and has received two UCI Celebration of Teaching Awards. Presently, in an effort to address global environmental challenges that threaten our planet, Dean Bullock has instituted the new UCI Solutions that Scale (StS) initiative.
Prof. Bullock’s presentation will be an immersive deep dive space exploration of the galaxies, showcasing new staggering discoveries and stunning celestial images as captured by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).
