Exploring Astrophysics

Hi everyone, welcome to episode 24 of Exploring astrophysics with me, Vikram Bhamre. Between university applications and school starting, I didn’t have time to release an episode last month. But the wait is definitely worth it, because today I am joined by Dr Javier Garcia, an assistant professor of physics at California Institute of technology.

Show Notes

Dr Garcia has been looking at the gravitational fields near black holes and neutron stars to better understand the phenomenon we see in these unordinary circumstances. He talked about his transition from atomic physics to X-ray astrophysics, and what he has been working on recently. Stay tuned till the end of the episode, where he gives advice on what you can do to get involved in research.

What is Exploring Astrophysics?

Join me as I learn about the world of Astrophysics. My name is Vikram Bhamre and I am 18 years old. On my podcast, Exploring Astrophysics, I chat with some of the most incredible astrophysicists around the world on the most interesting questions left unanswered in astrophysics. What's amazing is how helpful and forthcoming they all are and I hope you too are inspired when you listen to them.
