NSF CAREER award advances work in fundamental physics

(Patrick) #1

A theoretical physicist from the University of Houston is seeking answers to fundamental questions about the nature of the universe, studying the interactions of elementary particles for clues to what happened in the microseconds after the Big Bang.

Claudia Ratti, assistant professor of physics at the University of Houston, has received a five-year, $475,000 Early CAREER award from the National Science Foundation to continue her work.
