L’Oreal Award for women in science: Interview with Dr. Tamara Davis
In 2009, Dr. Davis won the L’Oreal Award for women in science for her work on using exploding stars (supernovae) to help determine the rate of expansion of the universe. She is using the $20 000 prize money to gather a team of top scientists to explore the nature of the observed accelerating expansion in more detail. Tamara elaborates in the following video. For details about the prize see here and here.
