Nuclear Physics Professors Ani Aprahamian, Manoel Couder, James deBoer, Daniel Robertson and Anna Simon as well as research associate Dr. Xilu Wang and a fifth year graduate student Erika Holmbeck presented their research at the 9th Nuclear Physics in Astrophysics conference that took place from September 15th to 20th in Budenheim, Germany. This conference intends to bring together researchers from a multi-disciplinary community of experimental and theoretical nuclear physicists, astronomers, astrophysicists and cosmo-chemists to discuss the current challenges of this exciting and fast developing research field.

The presence of Notre Dame Research was not only visible in the Notre Dame's presentation but it was also cited by a large amount of the other participants in their own presentation.

Erika Holmbeck advised by Professors Rebecca Surman and Timothy Beers, won the “Best Poster Award” for her work on Characterizing r-Process Sites Through Actinide Production at the conference.
