Two School of Mathematics researchers will head to St. Petersburg, Russia, in 2022 to lecture at the prestigious International Congress of Mathematicians, which is held every four years.
The Georgia Tech Alumni Association has released its annual list of young graduates working to change our world, with six College of Sciences alumni from three schools among those honored in the 2021 class of the Tech’s 40 Under 40: Arindam Basu (MS Math 09, PhD ECE 10), James Belanger (EAS 07, PhD EAS 12), Kristen Marhaver (Bio 04), Melissa Nord (EAS 13), Michole Washington (AM 16), and Thomas “Bo” Hatchett (Bio 13).
Could the absence of spectators — and their cheers — impact the performances of Olympic athletes in Tokyo competing in the Summer Games? Psychology professor Bruce Walker says much depends on whether the athlete hears spectator sounds as distractions, or "white noise" that helps them focus.
Traffic and wind regularly cause low frequency vibrations to ripple through bridge building materials such as steel and concrete. This energy would normally travel away from its source before dissipating — but School of Mathematics' Rachel Kuske is joining colleagues at Georgia State University and Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh to capture and recycle this untapped energy source by using the principles of physics.
For years, NASA has been studying ice on the Moon. Now, they want to determine where it is exactly and just how much, and a spacecraft at Georgia Tech could provide definitive answers. Georgia Tech engineers and researchers will work with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Southern California to assemble, integrate and test a small satellite mission known as Lunar Flashlight.
In a fiscal year indelibly marked by the pandemic, College of Sciences researchers kept busy with projects and teaching, grant applications, and a number of significant funding wins.
A lecturer and director of Outreach for Georgia Tech's undergraduate degree in Neuroscience program has been named the Carol Ann Paul Educator of the Year by Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience (FUN), an international organization supporting neuroscience education and outreach.
