What is the universe made of by William DeRocco

What is the universe made of by William DeRocco

Supernovae, by virtue of their high temperatures, are unique laboratories for exploring new physics beyond the Standard Model.

Leveraging Meteorite Outgassing Experiments to Constrain the Initial  Atmospheres of Terrestrial Exoplanets by Maggie Thompson

Leveraging Meteorite Outgassing Experiments to Constrain the Initial Atmospheres of Terrestrial Exoplanets by Maggie Thompson

My current research objective is to make a major contribution to understanding the formation processes and composition of terrestrial exoplanet atmospheres by constraining their initial atmospheric abundances through meteorite outgassing experiments.

No Galaxy Left Behind – Building a Census of the Universe with the Dark Energy Survey by Spencer Everett

No Galaxy Left Behind – Building a Census of the Universe with the Dark Energy Survey by Spencer Everett

I work to constrain theories of dark matter and dark energy by building a “census” of galaxies in the universe and extracting cosmological information from their intrinsic clustering and shapes.

Universal phenomena in statistics of random growth models by Kevin Yang

Universal phenomena in statistics of random growth models by Kevin Yang

In 1986, the physicists Kardar, Parisi, and Zhang conjectured a universal behavior in the statistics of seemingly unrelated random growth models including the patterns in surfaces of bacterial growth colonies, the fronts of wildfires, and the shape of tumor growth.

Applications of Error Correcting Codes by Luis Alberto Perez

Applications of Error Correcting Codes by Luis Alberto Perez

Error-correcting codes (ECC), found in coding theory, use methods to handle possible errors that may arise from electronic noise, to a scratch of a CD in a way where they are detected and corrected.

Investigation transport in the quantum anomalous hall effect by Ilan Rosen

Investigation transport in the quantum anomalous hall effect by Ilan Rosen

Ilan studies how electrons flow through so-called topological phases of matter. In a typical conductor, electrons flow uniformly through the bulk of the material.

Polyhedral Combinatorics by Cesar Meza

Polyhedral Combinatorics by Cesar Meza

In a three-dimensional polyhedron, a "flag" is a vertex inside an edge inside a face; in higher dimensions, "flags" are defined similarly.
