Jess McIver visit in Prague

Jess McIver from Caltech visited Prague and gave two talks: “Astrophysics with LIGO and gravitational waves” and “Gravitational-wave astrophysics: a new era of discovery”. In addition, she outline some of the problems of contemporary physics including diversity and representation of the population and discussed these issues with the students. The visit was supported by small grant “Role models in physics” from the US Embassy in Prague.
