Faculty and Staff:
When he left his home in Islamabad, Pakistan, Amer Latif hoped to find some answers to his many questions about the universe in science. But by the time he graduated with a degree in physics from Bard College, Amer knew that the answers to his questions—and often the questions themselves—transcended science. His liberal arts education has allowed other questions to surface: “questions of beauty and meaning,” he says. He is driven by a desire to know the deeper significance of things in addition to the measurement of them.
