Vice Chancellor of the Australian National University since 2016, Professor Schmidt is one of Australia’s most eminent scientists. He received undergraduate degrees in Astronomy and Physics from the University of Arizona in 1989, and completed his Astronomy Master's degree (1992) and PhD (1993) at Harvard University. Under his leadership, in 1998, the High-Z Supernova Search team made the startling discovery that the expansion rate of the Universe is accelerating. Winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics alongside many other academic awards and distinctions, Professor Schmidt spent most of his academic career as an astrophysicist at the ANU Mount Stromlo Observatory and Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics before becoming Vice Chancellor.

Join Professor Brian Schmidt at the National Library of Australia as he reflects on 75 years of history at the Australian National University.
