Description Typescript (33 pages) by Anne Peterson with Pierre Sokolsky, July 12, 2011
Abstract The son of a professor of Russian literature and language, Dr. Sokolsky had originally wanted to study medicine but serendipitous events led him to study physics at the University of Chicago. Of his projects he is most proud of the Fly's Eye project and his current project, the Telescope Array, where he is part of a group of 130 scientists. He discusses ACCESS, the University of Utah program to train and retain women in the sciences. He sees the lack of women pursuing science and mathematics as a continuing problem and hopes the program will be recreated throughout Utah. He has been Dean of the College of Science at the University of Utah for five years and explains that it was the amazing quality of the faculty that made him want to be Dean. Project. Interviewer:
