STEM Pre-Academy is honored to be working in collaboration with Dr. Veronica Bindi. Dr. Bindi's main research focuses on the study of dark matter, cosmic rays, solar modulation, and solar energetic particles in space. She has been a part of the team at CERN that led to the construction, integration, and testing of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, or AMS-02, detector that has been installed on the International Space Station. Hailing from Italy, Dr. Bindi brings her fresh and exciting take on physics to students around the State of Hawai‘i and the world on topics from cosmic rays, to preparing for a mission to Mars.
