Suman Neupane, who has defended his Ph.D dissertation recently, has won the best dissertation award for the Department of Physics. He rose above a very fine crop this year. His advisor, Dr. Wenzhi Li will present this award at the Arts & Sciences awards ceremony on Sunday, April 27, 2014 from 4:00 – 6:30 p.m. in SIPA 125.
As a newly minted Ph.D, Dr. Chola Regmi was recognized by the President during the commencement ceremony as one of this year's Worlds Ahead graduates for his achievement. Chola obtained his Ph.D in biophysics this year under the guidance of professors Bernard Gerstman and Prem Chapagain. After graduation, Chola will continue working in the field as a post-doctoral researcher at Virginia Tech.
Physics Department Graduate Research Competition Concluded Today!
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!
The grant is part of HHMI’s initiative to improve how science is taught by enabling schools to focus on significant and sustained improvement in retaining STEM students.

Congratudation to Dr. Richard Bone for receiving this prestigious award.
Dr. Angela Laird was recognized as a Highly Cited Researcher based on Web of Science citations by Thomson Reuters. She is the only person from FIU to be so recognized.
Dr. Sargisan, as a lead author, has just published an article in the most recent edition of Science Magazine. Collaborating with physicists from the CLAS Collaboration, they have observed something totally new: protons and neutrons that have briefly paired up in the nucleus have higher-average momentum, leaving less for non-paired nucleons.
Dr. Brian Beckford, who obtained his Bachelor's and Master's degree from FIU, is featured in an article in the October edition of Physics Today.
As part of its commitment to improving STEM education, FIU’s STEM Transformation Institute has opened two state-of-the-art active learning classrooms in the new Academic Health Center 5 (AHC-5). Here, students put the textbooks away and tackle scientific challenges with a hands-on approach. The classrooms are the first of several designed to house active learning at a financially sustainable scale. Currently, six STEM courses are taught in AHC-5 with more than 350 students in its first semester
