Eight graduate students participated in today's annual graduate student research competition. The first prize winner is Ramona Perez, who presented her research about proton detections from deuterium-deuterium nuclear fusion reactions to study plasma instabilities. For the first time, two students shared the second prize: Adam Freese for his research on QCD for nuclei, and Jeevan GC for protein transformations using molecular dynamics simulations.
Purushottam Tiwari won this year's Graduate Student Research Competition at FIU Scholarly Forum in the physics category. Purushottam presented his resarch on Quartz nanopipettes: platform for label free quantitative study of protein-protein interaction. He has been working under the supervision of Dr. Yesim Darici and Dr. Jin He. Congratulations to Purushottam!
Particle Fever, the astonishing new documentary about the Large Hadron Collider, will be shown at the O Cinema at Miami shores this week.
