Physics majors Michel Malda ’22 and Ben Gordon ’22 attended the APS April Meeting: Quarks to Cosmos in New York City this past weekend with Dr. Daniel Pitonyak, assistant professor of physics. There, Michel gave a talk titled “Updated QCD Global Analysis of Single Transverse-Spin Asymmetries with Additional Constraints from Experimental Data and Lattice QCD,” Ben presented “Analysis of the cos2φ and cosφ Modulations in Semi-Inclusive Deep-Inelastic Scatterring,” and Dr. Pitonyak discussed “Comprehensive Study of SSAs within the Jefferson Lab Angular Momentum (JAM) Global Analysis Framework.” The research was supported by Dr. Pitonyak’s National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to study the 3-dimensional structure of hadrons.

Dr. Keith Veenhuizen, assistant professor of physics and director of cooperative engineering, Olivia Magneson ’23, and Jacob Franklin ’23 presented results of their research at the virtual Glass and Optical Materials Division (GOMD) 2021 Annual Meeting in December. Veenhuizen presented the talk, “Effect of glass composition on the laser-induced nucleation and growth of lithium niobate crystals in lithium niobosilicate glass.” Magneson gave a poster presentation titled, “Phase-selective laser-induced crystallization of lead bismuth gallate glass,” and Franklin gave a poster presentation titled, “Formation of continuous lithium niobate single crystals in lithium niobosilicate glass via femtosecond laser irradiation.” GOMD 2021 brings together researchers in industry and academia to share findings about glass science and technology.
Liam Schmidt ’22, an English and Spanish double major, learned that his abstract, Rethinking Seamus Heaney’s “At a Potato Digging”: A Challenge to History’s Efforts to Explain the Past, was accepted for the VIII Biannual Society for Irish Latin American Studies (SILAS) Conference. This international conference is hosted by SILAS (Ireland), the Associação Brasileira de Estudos Irlandeses, W. B Yeats Chair of Irish Studies(Universidad de São Paulo, Brasil), Asociación de Estudios Irlandeses del Sur (Argentina), Universidad del Pacífico, and Proyecto Especial Bicentenario (Perú). The conference will held virtually Nov. 23–26.
Professor Jeff Snyder, chair and professor of music and director of music business, moderated a panel with four other higher education recording and music business directors for the Millennium Music Conference. Snyder and his fellow faculty facilitated “A perspective of the future of the music industry: post pandemic by music educators.” The discussion centered on preparing music industry/recording students for a shifting post-COVID landscape.
Dr. Dan Pitonyak, assistant professor of physics, attended the virtual APS Division of Nuclear Physics Fall Meeting with three students last week. During the conference hosted by Michigan State University’s Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, Pitonyak gave a talk titled, “First Global Analysis of SSAs in SIDIS, Drell-Yan, e+e Annihilation, and Proton-Proton Collisions.” Michel Malda ’23, physics and analytical finance, gave a talk titled, “Mapping the 3D Structure of Hadrons through Asymmetries in Single-Inclusive Pion Production from Electron-Proton Collisions,” and Ben Gordon ’23, physics, and Adam Rilatt ’24, computer & data science, presented a poster titled, “Extraction of the Boer-Mulders Function from Unpolarized SIDIS Data.”
Dr. Daniel Pitonyak, assistant professor of physics, gave a talk, “Multi-Parton Correlations in SIDIS, electron-positron, and proton-proton collisions,” at the QCD Evolution 2019 Conference at Argonne National Lab in May. The conference supports and guides the high-energy nuclear physics programs at facilities such as Jefferson Lab, the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Lab, Fermi National Accelerator Lab, and Large Hadron Collider at CERN. The workshop is also central to the planning for the next-generation nuclear physics facility in the United States, the Electron Ion Collider.
