The circumgalactic medium (CGM) represents the boundary between the interstellar medium and the cosmic web, and its properties are directly shaped by the baryon cycle in galaxies. The CGM was traditionally believed to consist mostly of warm and hot gas, but recent breakthroughs have presented a new scenario according to which an important fraction of its mass may reside in an "hidden" cold atomic and molecular phase.

Observational astrophysics is often driven by the desire for ever increasing angular resolution, which has resulted in larger and more expensive telescopes with time. However, telescopes with very small apertures can sometimes perform cosmological measurements as important as their larger siblings. In this talk, I will present several examples of small aperture, space-based experiments providing unique views of the large scale structure of the Universe as traced at optical and infrared wavelengths.

Related Upcoming Events:

Fractional-order time and space derivatives extend the classical diffusion equation in a manner that accounts for the non-Gaussian diffusion often observed in heterogeneous materials. MRI provides diffusion-weighted images of biological tissues, which exhibit anisotropic, hindered, and restricted diffusion. Fractional calculus models of anomalous diffusion display regions of sub- and super-diffusion separated by a line of quasi-diffusion along which the mean squared displacement is a linear function of diffusion time.

The Equity & Inclusion in PHAS team presents “Impostor Syndrome,” a workshop run by astrophysicist Dr. Renée Hložek.

Navigating the academic environment can be stressful. Power dynamics can impact our ability to communicate clearly with each other, and can generate feelings of impostor syndrome. In this interactive workshop, we will use techniques of improvisation and changing power dynamics to explore ways we can shape our communication environment.
