most creative 50

wonderful to be considered among the most creative 50.

phone app for listening to pulsars

you can listen to the sounds of pulsars just by pointing your android smartphone to the sky. Download it from the Google Play store, and let me know what you think.

talk at Harvard-art museums

intro to the talk I gave at the Harvard-Art Museums. My pulsar symphony became a permanent piece for the digital display at the museum. Go and take a look.

outreach conversations with K12 students

I have a network of wonderful colleagues who are thrilled to interact with K-12 students. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have cosmic questions! We are happy to have a conversation with the next generation of scientists.

a pulsar symphony

what would the Galaxy sound like if pulsars were the main musical instrument and it would play Beethoven's 9th Symphony (An die Freude/Ode to Joy). The distribution and frequencies of pulsars in the animation are realistic. The flashes of pulsars have a relation to their kinetic energies. Have a listen.
