Harvard's Dr. Delilah Gates joins to discuss the fascinating & foreboding subject of black holes! Black holes are mysterious objects that have perplexed humanity for centuries, yet Delilah reveals new perspectives on their most inscrutable properties via in-depth studies of their spins, entropy, event horizons & more.

Dr. Delilah Gates is Harvard's second African American woman to receive a Ph.D. in physics. Before joining Harvard, she earned two Bachelors of Science degrees: one in physics and one in math, from the University of Maryland, College Park. She studies high-spin black holes and gravity working to analytically characterize observational signatures of near extremal Kerr black holes using the emergent near-horizon conformal symmetry. Her interests include (near) extremal black hole geometries, black hole binaries, AdS/CFT correspondence, and black hole entropy.
