Dr. Brenda Dingus of Los Alamos National Lab is the guest speaker for the NRAO-Socorro colloquium. Dingus received the Mexican Physical Society's 2017 Medal for her work establishing the High-Altitude Water Cherenkov Gamma-Ray Observatory (HAWC) in the state of Puebla, Mexico.
Dingus, who has more than two decades of experience in gamma-ray astronomy, has been involved in some of the field's most important discoveries. She has conducted pioneering work in gamma-ray bursts and made contributions to the relatively young field of very high-energy gamma-ray astronomy.
