Robert P. Kirshner, the Clowes Research Professor of Science in the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences, set out to find the deceleration of the expansion of the universe, only to find something else: amazingly, the measurements showed the expansion of the universe to be speeding up. The astonishing (un)discovery of cosmic acceleration has now been confirmed from many directions—and attributed to a “dark energy” that dominates the universe, whose nature is a deep mystery at the heart of physics.

The E-Cigarette Dilemma: A Public Health Perspective


https://theforum.sph.harvard.edu/ " />
Since their introduction, e-cigarettes have triggered controversy. Often touted as safer alternatives to regular cigarettes, e-cigarettes come with their own risks, including possible nicotine addiction. Use among youth in particular has increased dramatically, and the FDA has proposed tighter regulations in an effort to reduce teen use. In this Forum, experts explored the perceived risks and benefits of e-cigarettes, asking how best to move forward while preserving past tobacco control successes.

Part of The Dr. Lawrence H. and Roberta Cohn Forums, this event was presented jointly with Reuters on May 7, 2019.

DRIVING EXPLORATORY VISUALIZATION THROUGH PERCEPTION AND COGNITION
Danielle Albers Szafir, assistant professor of information science and affiliate professor of computer and cognitive science, University of Colorado Boulder

Danielle Albers Szafir’s research sits at the intersection of information visualization, data science, computer graphics, and cognitive science. Along with a team of fantastic students and collaborators, she looks at the relationship between cognition and visualization design. Through this process, she develops interactive visualization systems, guidelines, and techniques for exploring large, complex data. This work has inspired collaborations across a variety of domains including genomics, bioinformatics, the humanities, biochemistry, and perceptual psychology.

The Next in Science series allows early-career scientists whose creative, cross-disciplinary research is thematically linked to introduce their work to one another, to fellow scientists, and to nonspecialists from Harvard and the Greater Boston area.

As part of the 2018–2019 Fellows’ Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, EJ Hill RI ’19 provides context for the project on which he’s currently working, a research and exhibition project inspired by the 17th-century Russian predecessor to the roller coaster (referred to as “Russian Mountains”).

Hill is an artist whose practice incorporates painting, writing, installation, and performance in ways that seek to elevate bodies and amplify voices that have long been rendered invisible and inaudible by oppressive social structures. https://www.radcliffe.harvard.edu/people/ej-hill
