Physicist, Professor, Science Communicator, Filmmaker, Inclusion Activist 

 

Dr. Ágnes Mócsy is a Hungarian-American - born in Transylvania - theoretical physicist, who's current research and creative work focuses on the intersection of science and the arts, and that of the gender, racial, and in general minority landscape and inclusivity in science, and beyond.

She has been awarded as Alexander von Humboldt Fellow, a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and Yale Presidential Visiting Fellow 2018/19. 

As professor she developed courses with non-traditional ways of approaching physics: "Starstruck: Meet Our Universe" and "Science, the Film Muse" at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY, and "Physics Meets the Arts" at Yale University, New Haven, CT. She co-taught "Being Human in STEM" at Yale, a course examining how factors of gender, race, religion, sexuality, and economic circumstances shape the STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) experience at Yale and nationwide.

 

As researcher she made significant research contributions in high energy nuclear physics, in the theory and phenomenology of strong nuclear interactions, investigating how matter formed microseconds after the Big Bang. 

She started making documentaries in 2012 www.smashingmatters.com 

As science communicator she had produced and performed shows, including physics inspired fashion shows and art shows.

 

She delivered more than 130 invited talks throughout the world, has authored 35 research papers (2016-2013) and numerous science communication articles, including for the Huffington Post and Művelődés. 

Prof. Mócsy held positions at The Niels Bohr Institute, Copenhagen, Denmark, at the Goethe University, Frankfurt, Germany, at Brookhaven National Laboratory, NY, and visiting appointments at the École Polytechnique and CEA Saclay, Paris, France and the Wright Laboratory at Yale University.
