Paul Sutter received his PhD in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011. After spending three years at the Paris Institute of Astrophysics, he now splits his
time between a research fellowship in Trieste, Italy, and a visiting scholar position at the Ohio State University’s Center for Cosmology and Astro-Particle Physics. His research focuses on many diverse topics, from the emptiest regions of the universe, to the earliest moments of the Big Bang, to the formation of the first stars.
Paul is also the host of several podcast and youtube shows: “Ask a Spaceman!” where he answers questions posted on social media, “Realspace” where he interview other young scientists and educators to break down misconceptions, and “Space in your Face”, presenting the latest astronomy news in under two minutes.
