Image of Chandra Prescod WeinsteinProfessor Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy and Core Faculty Member in Women’s Studies at the University of New Hampshire. I am also lead axion wrangler and social media team member for the NASA STROBE-X Probe Concept Study. My driving impulse: understand the origin of spacetime and the particles that populate it. Using ideas from both physics and astronomy, I respond to deep questions about how everything got to the be the way it is. The Disordered Cosmos, my popular science book which draws from my experience and knowledge as a Black American theoretical physicist, is forthcoming from Nation Books. (My name is pronounced phonetically like “Chahnda Prescod-Winestine.”)
