All Recent Accomplishments

Jonathan Goldman, Ph.D., professor of humanities, Department of Humanities, published a review of Michael Groden's "The Necessary Fiction: Life with James Joyce's Ulysses," in James Joyce Quarterly 58.3-4, Summer 2021, on October 1, 2021.

Jonathan Goldman, Ph.D., professor of English, Department of Humanities, performed in Spanglish Fly at Lincoln Center's Concerts for Kids, on October 1, 2021.

Jonathan Goldman, Ph.D., professor of English, Department of Humanities, published the article "Revisiting Dyckman Oval, A Lost Landmark From the Heyday of Black Baseball" in Atlas Obscura, on October 1, 2021.

Jamel Vanderburg, M.P.A., adjunct instructor of interdisciplinary studies, was featured as part of the second cohort of Uplift, a visual publication that features black male educators who inspire youth in all levels of education, on October 1, 2021.

Sophia Domokos, Ph.D., assistant professor of physics, had her paper "Holographic hadron masses in the language of quantum mechanics," published in the European Journal of Physics on August 23, 2021. The paper, co-written by Robert Bell, Ph.D., visiting assistant professor of mathematics, and two New York Tech undergrads, Trinh La, and Patrick Mazza, describes how to translate aspects of string theory's mathematically and conceptually complex "holographic duality" into the simpler language of quantum mechanics.

Sophia Domokos, Ph.D., assistant professor of physics, presented her paper "A Pedagogical Introduction to Holographic Hadrons," at the AAPT Summer Meeting on June 25, 2021. The paper, co-written by Robert Bell, Ph.D., visiting assistant professor of mathematics, and two New York Tech undergrads, Trinh La, and Patrick Mazza, describes how string theory's holographic duality can be translated into the language of quantum mechanics.

Pejman Sanaei, Ph.D., assistant professor of mathematics, was awarded a $204,085 grant from the National Science Foundation Division of Mathematical Sciences on June 18, 2021 to study "RUI: Asymptotic and Numerical Techniques in Mathematical Modeling of Membrane Filtration."

Yusui Chen, Ph.D., assistant professor of physics, published an article entitled “Dynamical quantum phase transitions in the spin-boson model” in Optics Express on July 13, 2021. This research work discovers dynamical quantum phase transitions in the few-body quantum systems in a strong non-Markovian environment.

Amanda Golden, Ph.D., associate professor of English, Department of Humanities, was invited to join the International Advisory Board for the Modernist Archives Publishing Project (MAPP), on July 1, 2021.

Sophia Domokos, Ph.D., assistant professor of physics, presented a poster about her research at Strings 2021, The Premier International String Theory Conference, on June 25, 2021.
