Su Latt '15, physics major from Yangon, Myanmar

Mark Taylor, Ph.D., associate professor of physics, and Su Latt ’15, physics major from Yangon, Myanmar, presented their research at the American Physical Society, Ohio Region, 2015 Spring Meeting held at Kent State University on March 27-28, 2015.

Latt presented a poster (coauthored with Dr. Taylor) entitled “Phase diagram of a multi-domain heteropolymer: A computer simulation study”.

Taylor gave a talk (coauthored with alumnus Samip Basnet ’14 and Jutta Luettmer-Strathmann) entitled “Partition function zeros for the polymer adsorption transition.”

The focus topic of this meeting was the phase diagram of quark-matter; however, the meeting included talks and posters covering all areas of physics.
