Sabbaticals

Thursday, August 27, 2009
  • On August 24, Professor Glenn Edwards left for the Curie Institute in Paris, France for a year-long sabbatical.
  • In September Professor Moo-Young Han departs for one semester to teach at the College of Natural Sciences of the Seoul National University in Seoul, Korea.  He will return for the start of the Spring semester of 2010.
  • At the end of August, Professor Henry Greenside will leave for a semester-long sabbatical at Janelia Farm Research Campus, a biomedical research center funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Loudoun County, Virginia.

Glenn Edwards will pursue research in biological physics in collaboration with Jean-François Joanny and Emmaneul Farge at the Curie Institute, and Valérie Cabuil and Christine Ménager at the Pierre and Marie Curie University.

The course Moo-Young Han will teach at Seoul National University is entitled  "20th Century Physics and Society."  This course mirrors the class he teaches here at Duke.

Professor Henry Greenside will work with Dmitri Chklovskii on mapping the circuits of the brain of the nematode C. elegans in order to better understand the nonequilibrium system that is the central nervous system.

Professor Greenside also recently co-authored a book from Cambridge University Press.  See the post here on his new publication, Pattern Formation and Dynamics in Nonequilibrium Systems.
