Karen Uhlenbeck’s pioneering work marries math with physics. Her work in the field of mathematical physics has earned her numerous honors and awards, including the 1988 Noether Lecture award, the National Medal of Science in 2001, and the 2007 Steele Prize for a Seminal Contribution to Mathematical Research from the American Mathematical Society. A MacArthur fellow, she is also the first woman to win the Abel Prize in its 17-year history.

A memorial visitation for Fermilab postdoc Simone Marcocci will be held this Friday, Aug. 16, from 4-8 p.m. at the Daleiden Mortuary at 220 North Lake St. in Aurora. His family welcomes Simone’s friends and colleagues to pay their respects.

(1/4) Dylan Smith is a research intern under scientist Erik Ramberg. He hails from Dearborn, Michigan, and is currently a senior at Michigan State University. In the test room at SiDet, there is a vacuum chamber with a charge-coupled device (CCD) coated in boron-10. His research goal is to characterize ultracold neutron events that occur when the neutrons hit the boron-10 and come into contact with the CCD. He's also been working with software that simulates particle tracks in silicon, with the eventual goal of designing a method to calculate the incident angle of alpha particles that hit a silicon target. people Photo: Leticia Shaddix
