Agnes Mocsy



Dr. Ágnes Mócsy is a Hungarian-American theoretical physicists, professor of Physics and Astronomy at the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY. She is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and Yale Presidential Visiting Fellow 2018/19. Prof. Mócsy made significant contributions in high energy nuclear physics, in particular in the theory and phenomenology of strong interactions, investigating how matter formed microseconds after the Big Bang. Previously, Prof. Mócsy held positions at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark, as Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, at the RIKEN-BNL Center at Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, NY, and held visiting appointments at École Polytechnique and CEA Saclay in Paris, France and at Wright Lab/Physics Department at Yale University. Her current research explores the intersection and deep connection of science and the arts, and that of the gender and racial landscape and inclusivity in science and beyond. She is also a documentary filmmaker, had written to the Huffington Post, has been collaborating with artists in various mediums, designing novel ways for physics education, producing and performing science inspired fashion and art shows, and is a sought after public science communicator.
