A Celebration of our Faculty: Jules Halpern, Joe Patterson and Jacqueline van Gorkom
April 21, 2023
The department gathered to celebrate the research, teaching and service work of three faculty who recently retired: Jules Halpern, Joe Patterson and Jacqueline van Gorkom. The afternoon featured talks highlighting the importance of their work and concluded in a dinner in a fancily decorated 14th floor Pupin. These faculty members were key to building the Columbia Astronomy department to what it is today and the celebration was enjoyed by all.
