Quarks in the Universe

Associate Professor of Physics

Moderated by: Cynthia Wichelman, M.D.

Learn about quarks and other aspects of our universe from one of the Washington University students' favorite professors. (“The best teacher ever”, ”One of the best teachers I have had. He is hilarious and makes the class very interesting. The material is difficult, but he makes us understand.”, ”He is amazing. I actually want to go to class!”) Professor Alford's research focuses on high density quark matter and color superconductivity.

Science On Tap is a place where, for the price of a beverage, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place outside a traditional academic context, in the Crown Room at Schlafly Bottleworks.

Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month during the academic year, usually from 7:00 - 8:30 PM. The standard format is as follows: 20 minutes of presentation, followed by a 7 minute break for attendees to introduce themselves to each other at the table, and then an hour of discussion. Seating is limited to the first 100 people.  No reservations accepted.
