Physics initiative launches with hiring of Dam Thanh Son
As part of an ambitious plan to recruit outstanding theoretical physicists from around the world, the University of Chicago has appointed Dam Thanh Son as University Professor of Physics, effective Sept. 1.
The depth and elegance of Son’s research has demonstrated links between such seemingly unrelated areas of physics as nuclear physics and black holes. His interests also range across atomic, condensed matter and particle physics. A native of Vietnam, Son comes to UChicago from the University of Washington, where he serves as a professor of physics and a senior fellow in the Institute for Nuclear Theory.
