The Centre Physics Faculty
(B.S., California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo; M.S., University of Washington, Seattle; Ph.D., University of California-Davis) was trained in particle physics phenomenology, specializing in supersymmetric Higgs boson discovery modes. His other interests include radar scattering and radar signal processing, inverse problems, mathematical physics, and nonlinear dynamical systems.

(B.S. and Ph.D, University of Texas at Austin; B.S. University of Missouri - St. Louis) is an experimental physicist who studies fluid dynamics and nonlinear dynamics. He uses scaled laboratory experiments to investigate instability and fluid flow in geophysical systems such as the ocean and protoplanetary discs. Prof. Rodenborn also studies the fluid dynamics of small swimmers such as bacteria using scaled laboratory experiments. He has a longstanding association with the Hands on Research in Complex Systems School: http://handsonresearch.org/
