Alumni Reunion Meeting
Luis Álvarez-Gaumé (Ph.D. 1981) is joining Stony Brook faculty as a director of the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics in September 2016.
Dr. Luis Álvarez-Gaumé's work has centered mostly upon string theory, quantum field theory and lately cosmology. He is better known for his work on supersymmetric field theories, the study of anomalies, the use of Witten’s index to study the Atiyah-Singer index theorem, and lately he is interested on the study of cosmology, black hole physics and string theory. He has written introductory lectures on Quantum Field Theory and reviewed many aspects of string theory and field theory. Since 2003 he has been a corresponding member of the Spanish Royal Academy of Sciences.

S.Y. Lee (Ph.D. 1972) is recipient of the USPAS Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Accelerator Physics and Technology
Professor Shih-Yuan Lee of Indiana University received the USPAS Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Accelerator Physics and Technology for "his extraordinary contributions to accelerator education including mentoring a large cadre of highly-regarded students, for overseeing the Indiana University - USPAS Master's Degree Program in Accelerator Physics and for serving as USPAS Director from 1998 to 2002". The award will be presented at the 2013 NA Particle Accelerator Conference in Pasadena, California. This special prize is awarded by the U.S. Particle Accelerator School on behalf of its Board of Governors.
Professor Lee received his Ph.D. from our Department in 1972, with a thesis titled "Theory of Effective Interaction and Operator in Nuclear Structure". His advisor was Professor T.T.S. (Tom) Kuo.
Jefferson Lab Names McKeown as Deputy Director for Science
Jefferson Lab announced on March 25 the appointment of Robert D. McKeown, a leading nuclear physicist and professor at the California Institute of Technology, to the position of deputy director for science.
He first became interested in experimental nuclear physics while an undergraduate student at Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, NY, where he received a B.S. in physics in 1974. He then continued his studies at Princeton University, where he received a Ph.D. in 1979.
Distinguished Alumni Awards Announced By Stony Brook University Alumni Association Honored in November 2007
Dr. Michael R. Anastasio (M.A., 1973, Ph.D. 1976; T.T.S. Kuo was his advisor) was selected to receive a Distinguished Alumni award and honored by the Stony Brook Association as a part of the University's 50th Anniversary celebration.
Dr. Anastasio is the Director of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, one of the largest research laboratories in the U.S. He earned his Stony Brook degrees in Theoretical Physics.

Dec. 15, 2008: Saturn's Dynamic Moon Enceladus Shows More Signs of Activity
PASADENA, Calif. The closer scientists look at Saturn's small moon Enceladus, the more they find evidence of an active world. The most recent flybys of Enceladus made by NASA's Cassini spacecraft have provided new signs of ongoing changes on and around the moon. The latest high-resolution images of Enceladus show signs that the south polar surface changes over time.
