The UNH Department of Physics is delighted to announce that Dr. Francois Foucart will be joining its faculty as an Assistant Professor in August, 2017. Dr. Foucart is a theoretical astrophysicist whose research focuses on black-hole/black-hole mergers (the in-spiral and subsequent coalescence of two black holes) and black-hole/neutron-star mergers. This problem was catapulted to international prominence by the first-ever direct detection of gravitational waves in 2016 by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO).

Dr. Elena Long will join the Physics Department and the Nuclear and Particle Physics Group at UNH this Fall. She has an active and growing research program at Jefferson Lab, which centers on a novel tensor-polarized deuterium target, which will be used in a number of experiments that seek to attain a deeper understanding of the structure of deuterium. Her work has been recognized with a JSA Post Doctoral Fellow Research Award and the JSA Promising Young Scientist Award, and was highlighted in the Department of Energy’s 2015 Long Range Plan for Nuclear Science.
