Sep 20, 2019Three of the nine Hagler Institute for Advanced Study 2019-20 Faculty Fellows will be affiliated with Texas A&M Science, including a world leader in quantum metrology and dynamics of entanglement, an astronomer who helped discover the accelerated expansion of the universe and a pioneer in analytic low-dimensional dynamics of recursive maps.
The Right StuffTexas A&M senior chemistry major Oscar Gonzalez '20 is one of two students selected as the university's latest recipients of $10,000 scholarships from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, which seeks to strengthen U.S. leadership in science and technology by supporting the nation's best undergraduate students pursuing STEM majors.
Sep 19, 2019Congratulations to Texas A&M physicists Tatiana Erukhimova and Saskia Mioduszewski, who have been named 2019 American Physical Society Fellows in recognition of excellence in original research and publication, innovative contributions to science and technology, and significant contributions to physics teaching and service.
Sep 13, 2019Congratulations to Texas A&M Provost and Executive Vice President Carol A. Fierke, recently selected to receive the 2020 Mildred Cohn Award honoring scientists who have made substantial advances to the understating of biological chemistry using innovative physical approaches.
Aug 31, 2019Texas A&M astronomers Lucas Macri, Darren DePoy and Jennifer Marshall are part of a bi-national project that has received a National Science Foundation award toward construction of a robotic telescope in Argentina to help them study gravitational wave events in deep space.
Presenting the Parzen Prize
Aug 30, 2019University of California, Berkeley statistician, data scientist and National Academy of Sciences member Bin Yu will visit the Texas A&M campus Sept. 5 as the guest speaker for the biennial Emanuel Parzen Prize Lecture Series, sponsored by the Texas A&M Department of Statistics.
Spheres of InfluenceAn international team of astronomers that includes Texas A&M’s Benjamin Boizelle and Jonelle Walsh has used the National Radio Astronomy Observatory's Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to obtain the clearest view to date of cold gas rotation around a supermassive black hole and calculated the mass of this supermassive black hole — the largest ever measured with ALMA — to be a whopping 2.25 billion times that of our Sun.
Jul 31, 2019Experimentation is the heart of scientific discovery, a process often limited only by drive, imagination and opportunity. Dozens of undergraduate students from across the nation recently seized theirs, spending the past two months at Texas A&M immersed in all things academic research while exploring their potential for graduate study, courtesy of a signature National Science Foundation program, Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU).
Running Down a DreamSenior Ethan Quinn looks every bit like someone who feels more at home in a weight room or chasing down opposing players on the field. This summer, the standout midfielder on the Seton Hill University lacrosse team temporarily traded his jersey in Pennsylvania for a lab coat in Aggieland to participate in Texas A&M Chemistry’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program. Meet the man and learn more about his motivation on the athletic and academic fields.
