Chris Impey is a University Distinguished Professor at the University of Arizona, where he leads one of the largest astronomy departments in the USA. He has over 200 scientific publications and has been awarded $20 million from NASA and the NSF.
When he isn't actively researching, Chris spreads his excitement for astronomy far and wide. For over a decade he has travelled to India to teach science to Buddhist monks and has published several popular science books such as Einstein's Monsters, The Living Cosmos and Humble Before the Void. He comes to HowTheLightGetsIn to defend the Big Bang in Our Story of the Universe.
