June 30, 2014 – Sung Hoon Kim is the receipient of the first Engineering and Applied Sciences Ph.D. from UMassD under direction of Physcis Professor Jong-Ping Hsu.

Dr. Kim's thesis is entitled "Investigation of the Graviton Self-Energy with General Gauge in Yang-Mills Gravity". See the full press release for details.
Supercomputers at the CSCVR to study black holes and cybersecurity

June 23, 2014 – Associate Professor Gaurav Khanna builds low-cost supercomputer, performance comparable to nearly 3000 processor-cores of typical laptop or desktop.

Physics professor and CSCVR associate director Gaurav Khanna has built an extremely low-cost supercomputer using 176 Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) gaming consoles installed in a refrigerated shipping container "reefer" of large cooling capability on the UMassD campus. The PS3 cluster is currently being used by UMass Dartmouth's Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research (CSCVR) to perform large and complex calculations in the context of black hole astrophysics, and also explore vulnerabilities in cybersecurity.
