Dr. Pitonyak and Students Present at APS Meeting

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. Pitonyak and Student-Researcher Present at National Conference

Dr. Daniel Pitonyak, assistant professor of physics, and Joshua Miller ’21, physics and mathematics, presented their summer research, funded by an Edward H. and Jeanne Donlevy Arnold Grant, at the American Physical Society Division of Nuclear Physics Conference in Virginia Oct. 14. Pitonyak presented “Global Analysis of Quark-Gluon Correlations in Hadrons,” and Miller gave a poster presentation, “3-Dimensional Hadronic Structure from Transverse-Spin Observables in High-Energy Collisions.” Their research is focused on better understanding the structure of the proton and the most fundamental pieces of matter that compose it.

Dr. Pitonyak Presents in Philadelphia

Dr. Dan Pitonyak, assistant professor of physics, presented a poster, “What Are We Made Of” at Start Talking Science in Philadelphia Sept. 26. Start Talking Science is a free, public event where STEM researchers present posters detailing their work to a general audience to foster insightful conversations and connections and increase public interest in cutting-edge STEM research. Pitonyak discussed how his research in high-energy nuclear physics can explore the most fundamental pieces of matter.
