The inaugural Hunstead Lectures are funded by a generous gift to the University of Sydney - the Dick Hunstead Fund for Astrophysics. These lectures are to take place in the last week of September, during the university mid-semester break 26-30 September 2016.

The lectures will be presented by Mark Krumholz (ANU), an American theorist and a world expert in star formation processes, particularly from a theoretical perspective, although his research group is also engaged in cutting-edge simulations and observations. He has recently taken up a staff position at ANU after serving on the faculty of UC Santa Cruz. His topics are likely to extend from what are we learning in theory, cosmological simulations, ALMA, etc.

The format will be a one hour lecture (11-12pm) each day, followed by 30 minutes of discussion. The target audience is to be PhDs and postdocs. Mark is
happy to meet with people during this week.

For more details, see the attached poster. Please email chindy at physics.usyd.edu.au<mailto:chindy at physics.usyd.edu.au> if you plan to attend.

All are welcome to join us.

If you can???t come, but would like to hear the lectures, you can access the live stream remotely via the following link (available from next week):


Note that the stream will consist basically of sharing the screen content and the audio (no view of the lecturer).
