Dark matter is thought to be the bulk of the material in the universe, yet cannot be detected. Its gravity pushing around cosmic bodies, dark matter is unseen and mysterious, like the invisible wind blowing the leaves. A team of researchers at The University of Alabama hope to develop tools that probe this otherwise invisible
Congratulations to Shan Zhao for being named an A&S Leadership Board Faculty Fellow! The College of Arts and Sciences Leadership Board Faculty Fellowships recognize the College’s most promising or most accomplished teacher/scholars, individuals early in their careers who demonstrate exceptional promise or faculty members who have brought distinction to the College and University throughout their
Congratulations to Assistant Professors Sergei Gleyzer from Physics and Brendan Ames from Mathematics who have been awarded an NSF grant for a project entitled “Decoding Dark Matter through Gravitational Lensing”. The award is for $365K and will run from September 1, 2021 through August 31, 2024.
Congratulations to Dr. Bulent Tosun who has been awarded an NSF grant from DMS Topology program: “The Topology of Contact Type Hypersurfaces and Related Topics”. The project aims to investigate underlying connections between low dimensional smooth manifolds and certain geometric/analytic structures defined on them. The first long-term research objective of this project is to understand
Congratulations to Dr. Shan Zhao who has been awarded an NSF grant from DMS Computational Mathematics program: “Collaborative Research: Implicit solvent modeling and fast algorithm development for simulating solutes with atomic polarizable multipoles”. This is a collaborative project with Dr. Weihua Geng at Southern Methodist University, with a total award of $448K. Dr. Zhao is
Seongjune Han has been selected as a recipient of the 2021 Randall Outstanding Undergraduate Research Award. Seongjune was nominated by Dr. Kyungyong Lee for his research entitled “The joint symmetry of q,t-Catalan Numbers”. Award winners will be recognized at the Randall Research Awards recognition luncheon later in the semester.
