A Florida State University cosmologist has been selected to co-lead a Department of Energy and National Science Foundation project investigating the faint leftover radiation from the Big Bang known as the cosmic microwave background, or CMB.
Florida State University President Richard McCullough has appointed Mark Riley to serve as Interim Vice President for Research. Riley replaces outgoing Interim Vice President for Research Laurel Fulkerson, who is retiring April 1.
Vandana Tripathi is an assistant professor in the Department of Physics, part of Florida State University’s College of Arts and Sciences. Her research focuses on understanding the structure of subatomic nuclei, especially those that are unstable and do not occur in nature but are crucial to understanding the early stages of the universe.
With Selection Sunday nearly upon us, the sports world is primed for March Madness. Who will be this year’s Cinderella story? Who will go home early? And which teams will make it to the Final Four?
Kevin Huffenberger is an associate professor in the Department of Physics, part of Florida State University’s College of Arts and Sciences. He earned his doctorate in 2006 from Princeton University, and his research focuses on physical cosmology, which is the study of the large-scale universe, with an emphasis on cosmic microwave background data analysis.
While we’re often encouraged to look at the big picture, Elise Chávez thinks small. Chávez, a Florida State Department of Physics alumna, is a particle physicist, working at the nano level to examine and experiment with subatomic particles — electrons, protons, neutrons — the smallest building blocks of the universe.
Florida State University physics professors are welcoming the community into the classroom this fall to learn about magnets, waves and exploding stars through the annual Saturday Morning Physics program.
