Physical Sciences. Her research interests are the physics of surfaces, condensed matter, and complex fluids, with an emphasis on light scattering and imaging. In addition to her research, Dr. Murray has substantial background in research management, having served as deputy director for science and technology at the LLNL, after serving as senior vice president for Bell Labs Research, Lucent Technologies.
Witold Nazarewicz is a professor of physics at the Department of Physics, University of Tennessee, and distinguished R&D staff at the Physics Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He is a distinguished theorist with broad expertise in nuclear physics, many-body problems, interdisciplinary many-body science, and computational physics. He is listed by the Institute for Scientific Information as among the most highly cited authors in physics. Dr. Nazarewicz is a fellow of AAAS, APS, and IOP. He was awarded the 2012 Tom W. Bonner Prize of the APS for his work in developing and applying nuclear density functional theory, motivating experiments and interpreting their results, and implementing a comprehensive theoretical framework for the physics of exotic nuclei. He received an honorary doctorate from the University of the West of Scotland and previously served on two NRC committees—the Committee on Nuclear Physics (1996-1999) and the Rare Isotope Science Assessment Committee (2005-2007). He is a director of the Universal Nuclear Energy Density Functional (UNEDF) Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) Program at DOE, associate editor of Reviews of Modern Physics, editor with Computer Physics Communications, member of the FRIB Science Advisory Committee, and member of the steering committees of the Japan-U.S. Theory Institute for Physics with Exotic Nuclei (JUSTIPEN) and the France-U.S. Theory Institute for Physics with Exotic Nuclei (FUSTIPEN). Dr. Nazarewicz has served on numerous DOE, NSF, and DNP/APS committees, including NSAC; was a member of the nuclear physics Long-Range Planning Working Groups in 1995, 2001-2002, 2005, and 2007-2008; and has served on advisory committees of the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL)/MSU, ATLAS/ ANL, the 88-in. cyclotron at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), HRIBF/ORNL, Institute for Nuclear Theory/Seattle, JLAB, and TRIUMF/Canada. In 2000-2005 he was a co-chair and chair of the RIA Users Organization.
Konstantinos Orginos is an assistant professor of physics at the College of William and Mary. He is also a senior staff member of the theory center at the JLAB. He received his Ph.D. in physics from Brown University in 1998, worked as a postdoctoral associate at the University of Arizona and the Brookhaven National Laboratory, and was a research scientist at the Laboratory for Nuclear Science at MIT. He joined the faculty at the College of William and Mary in 2005. He is the recipient of a DOE Outstanding Junior Investigator award. His research focuses on lattice quantum chromodynamics (QCD) calculations relevant for understanding
