September 2012: A Message from the Chair
All of us in the Department would like to extend a warm welcome to incoming students and to our returning undergraduates. We also welcome back Professor Yong Kim and his graduate student, Ryan Cress, who spent time in Korea at Seoul National University over the summer.
2012 is shaping up as a banner year for graduating Ph.D. students. Ten physics graduate students defended their dissertations since April! As we offer our congratulations, we are also sorry to see them go. The outgoing class was replaced by a diverse group of nine incoming graduate students from all across the country and around the world. Among them are one recipient of a Dean’s Fellowship and three GAANN fellows.
On Friday, September 14th, the department was one of the hosts of the Pennsylvania Network Meeting on the Physics and Chemistry of Biological Systems. The event, organized by Professor Dimitrios Vavylonis, attracted 120 participants from 25 institutions from around the state and beyond. An exciting series of oral presentations complemented by a poster session gave ample opportunities for the exchange of ideas and networking. Congratulations to Dimitris for organizing such a great event.
August 2012: A Message from the Chair
All of us in the Department would like to extend a warm welcome to incoming students and to our returning undergraduates. We look forward to seeing you.
2012 is shaping up as a banner year for graduating Ph.D. students. Ten physics graduate students defended their dissertations since April! As we offer our congratulations, we are also sorry to see them go.
As usual, our summer research activities were enhanced by contributions from students supported by our NSF-funded REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) Program, one of the longest-running NSF-REU programs in the Country. These 25 students were selected from a pool of 627 applicants!
Our first colloquium, scheduled for Thursday, September 6th, will be given by University of Pennsylvania Professor Andrew Rappe. Details and the full colloquium schedule will appear shortly.
Some of you might notice that this is an altogether new Physics website. Please bear with us as we fill in the blanks and iron out the difficulties. Your comments are always welcome! Volkmar Dierolf
