Frank Geurts, associate professor of physics and astronomy, has been appointed deputy spokesperson for the STAR Collaboration, a group of more than 600 high-energy nuclear physicists from 63 institutes in 13 countries. The collaboration conducts research at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, N.Y. STAR refers to the Solenoid Tracker at RHIC, one of the largest and most sophisticated experiments at the Long Island particle collider.
