Physics Prof Honored as a KITP Scholar

Professor Ben Burrington

Dr. Ben Burrington, Assistant Professor of  Physics and Astronomy, has been named a Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) Scholar for 2018-2021.

The Scholar Program brings together theorists in physics and allied fields to work on a broad range of questions arising from investigations at the leading edges of science. The KITP Institute at the University of California, Santa Barbara, is one of the most highly regarded scientific research facilities in the country. Its Scholar Program supports visiting researchers who are faculty at teaching intensive U.S. colleges and awards them travel and residency at the KITP Institute for two weeks a year. 

Dr. Burrington says he is looking forward to the vibrant research environment, interesting programs and conferences, and the opportunity for new collaborations that this experience will provide. 

Dr. Burrington is in good company; he joins Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy Adam Durst, who is serving as a KITP Scholar until 2019, and Department Chair Gregory Levine, who served from 2004-2006.
