Today at CERN, the Large Hadron Collider collaborations ATLAS and CMS jointly announced the discovery of the Higgs boson transforming into bottom quarks as it decays. Stony Brook's Giacinto Piacquadio co-leads the Higgs-to-bottom-quarks analysis group.
Malcolm Bowman’s research focuses on modeling dynamics of coastal fronts, eddies, island wakes and sea straits. He leads the Stony Brook Storm Surge Research Group, focusing on prediction and modeling of storm surges that threaten the NY– NJ Metropolitan area, northern NJ, and Long Island. The group studies regional methodologies that transcend geographical and political boundaries to protect critical infrastructure and population centers from extreme weather events and coastal flooding in the current era of climate change and sea level rise.
