Two Brazilian researchers received prestigious awards to visit the Physics Department in the Spring and Fall of 2017.

Professor Maurício Richartz (Centro de Matemática, Computação e Cognição, Universidade Federal do ABC, São Paulo, Brazil) was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to visit our department. Professor Richartz will visit for about four months, two in the Spring 2017 (starting on January 24) and two in the Fall 2017. On February 7 he will give a Physics colloquium with title “Analogue Black Holes: Theory and Experiments”.

Caio Macedo, currently a postdoctoral researcher at Federal University of Pará (Belém, Brazil) in professor Luís Crispino’s Grav@Zon group, also received a grant from the APS International Research Travel Award Program to visit our department.
