KMI Topics or “Cheese and Drinks”
KMI Topics is held at the rounge corner on the 6th floor from 5:00p.m once a month.
KMI considers KMI Topics represents an important opportunity for researchers to mingle and discuss
science with those from other fields in a liberal and casual atmosphere, to come up with new ideas.
KMI administrative staff helps run the KMI Topics.
All researchers working at and visiting the KMI are required to join the KMI Topics.
“Mini Interview for Speakers “
Can I interview you?
Dr. Takeshi Kobayashi delivered a speech at KMI Topics last year, the title is “Probing BSM Physics with Cosmological Magnetic Fields.”
It was a great presentation. We interviewed him some simple questions below.
I particularly like to work on the early universe, since it is a place where physics of both the large and short scales meet.
I am recently excited about this topic since it provides a new way of testing physics beyond the Standard Model through astrophysical observations.
Regarding the environment… I have no idea!
Thank you so much for taking your time, Dr. Takeshi !
