Professor Victoria Kaspi is one of Nature’s ten people who mattered in science in 2019

The Quebec Center for Research in Astrophysics (CRAQ) congratulates Professor Victoria Kaspi of McGill University for her selection as one of the 10 scientific personalities of the year 2019 from the journal Nature. 

Ms. Kaspi receives this honor for her work on the mysterious fast radio bursts (FRBs) discovered in recent years. More specifically, the Nature’s selection committee recognizes her important contribution to the development and use of the CHIME telescope (Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment) in order to better understand this cosmic phenomenon.
