Physics at Virginia

"Nuclear or Human Physics?"

Paul Guaye , Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) at Michigan State University
[Host: Prof. Kent Paschke]

Nuclear physics is a fascinating field that allows to probe the interactions between nucleons inside the nucleus using fundamental particles such as the electron or much larger and heavier objects like ions as magnifying glasses, allowing us to extract information about the how, why and what is happening inside nuclei. Yet, scientific discoveries have historically been rooted in the desire for some to take on a quest to tackle the unknown, often with relentless commitments and efforts, and sometimes bold actions that have proven to unravel new pathways. This talk will provide some brief review on the role and successes of (basic and applied) nuclear physics as they pertain to my journey in becoming a nuclear physicist, as well as establishing bridges to under-represented groups.
