About Jeremy Chapman:
JEREMY CHAPMAN recently completed his PhD in the particle astrophysics group at Brown University. Jeremy earned his B.S. in Physics and B.S. in Computer Engineering with a minor in Electrical Engineering from Syracuse University in 2007. Jeremy studies particle astrophysics both professionally as well as recreationally, believing that a fuller understanding of the Universe will foster a greater appreciation for one’s place within it. Currently he is working on the LUX experiment, the most sensitive dark matter detector in the world.
These performances are made possible in part by a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, through an appropriation by the Rhode Island General Assembly and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Meridian Project is a multimedia concert and lecture series exploring topics in astrophysics and cosmology.
