The Astronomy Department has invited Professor C. Megan Urry, the President of the American Astronomical Society and the Director of the Yale Center for Astronomy & Astrophysics, to speak at the annual Sturm Memorial Lecture this year.

Urry is not only an expert in this field, but she is also notably the first tenured female faculty member in the history of Yale’s Physics Department.
