Laboratory Astrophysics and High Energy Density Physics at the University of Nevada, Reno

I recorded a podcast!

In this episode of Sagebrushers, University of Nevada, Reno President Brian Sandoval speaks with Associate Professor Thomas White. White researches space not by gazing at the sky, but by replicating astrophysical conditions in the laboratory, effectively creating mini-planets and stars.  

Congratulations Landon

Congratulations to Landon Morrison for being awarded a Mission Support and Test Services (MSTS) Undergraduate Research Fellowship. Landon will be working with our group on hydrodynamic simulations of our OMEGA experiments on the transport properties of warm dense matter.

Three physicists at the UNR receive grants for high-energy-density plasma research!

We are so excited to be one of three groups at UNR awarded grants in plasma research from the DOE/NNSA high-energy-density program. Read more about our research here! 

Congratulations Leo and Tyreis

Congratulations to Leo Rodriguez and Tyreis Gatson for presenting their work at the Nevada Undergraduate Research Symposium after their summer participating in the Pack Research Experience Program (PREP)

Congratulations Jacob

Congratulations, Jacob, for winning the 2021 Goldwater Scholarship, the only student in Nevada to do so. What an incredible well-deserved achievement! 2021 Goldwater Scholars listed by Institution State
