From humble beginnings at the Liceo scientifico in the small hilltop town of Castel del Piano in Tuscany, Professor Bindi has risen to become a senior scientist of international prominence. Her research at CERN and then at the Physics and Astronomy Department at the University of Hawaii makes her one of the foremost experts in cosmic rays and dark matter. She is one of a handful of scientists who have access to the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, the world's most advanced space-particle detector, which is attached to the International Space Station. Her experience with space-based experiments has made her a valuable resource for NASA's exciting new project, Artemis, which aims to land the next human (including the first woman) on the moon by 2024.
Professor Bindi will share details of her fascinating and crucial work with us, as well as insights as to how to navigate a successful career in science.
