RAS Regular Monthly & Board Meetings

Next Meeting: Saturday, August 25th (Regular Monthly)

RAS Monthly Meetings are held at La Sierra University in Riverside. They are open to anyone who wants to attend, free of charge. There's a "Beginner's Corner" presentation that begins 30 minutes before the general meeting. During the meeting, we'll discuss some club business, have a "What's Up?" presentation (usually given by a club member), and a guest speaker will give us a presentation of astronomical interest. In addition, we'll enjoy some light snacks and wrap up with door prizes!

RAS Board Meetings are held once per quarter. They are held the same day as the regular monthly meeting, but only every 3rd month (roughly). The Board meets to discuss club business, plan events, outline expenditures and address any issues facing the club. Club members are encouraged to attend—it's your chance to weigh in on the club's activities and how it operates!

The Origin Story of Our Universe

Professor Anson D'Aloisio, UCR Department of Physics and Astronomy

Anson was born and raised in Middletown, Connecticut. After high school, he moved with his family to southern California to attend UC Riverside, where he graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. in Physics in 2005. He went on to graduate from Yale University in 2011 and received his Ph.D. in Physics. From there, he took postdoctoral positions at the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Washington. He came back home to join the Physics & Astronomy faculty at UC Riverside in January 2018. Anson's research interests fall broadly in the realm of theoretical astrophysics and cosmology.
