Dr. Michael Liu – Telescopes as Time Machines – TEDxHonolulu 2011

Born and raised in the Washington, D.C. area, Michael’s undergraduate work at Cornell University and his doctoral work at the University of California, Berkeley, led him to the Institute of Astronomy at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, where he is a faculty member. He studies how stars and planets form. To do this, his research uses the world’s most powerful telescopes both on and above the Earth, including the Keck Observatory on the Big Island of Hawai‘i and the Hubble Space Telescope.
