University Forum

Since 1974, the University Forum has been the premier speaker series at the University of Southern Mississippi. Next up, on Tuesday, February 20 in Bennett Auditorium, we welcome Harvard astronomer John Asher Johnson.

John Asher JohnsonJohnson (and his research team) have discovered three exoplanets, including the smallest exoplanet identified to date. An astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Johnson is the principal investigator for the Miniature Exoplanet Radial Velocity Array (MINERVA), an earth-based robotic search for exoplanets. Johnson is also a leading advocate for diversity in the sciences.

 

University Forum is free and open to the public, courtesy of the Honors College with generous support from the Office of the President.
