Congratulations to Dr. Xiaochun He, Distinguished University Professor

Congratulations to Dr. Xiaochun He, Professor of Physics, for being named a Distinguished University Professor of Georgia State University. Eight GSU professors have been named Distinguished University Professors “in recognition of their outstanding records in research, teaching, and mentoring students in research” and will serve five-year appointments starting July 1.

Dr. He is director of the Nuclear Physics Group at GSU; much of his research is with PHENIX (Pioneering High Energy Nuclear Interaction eXperiment), which investigates collisions of heavy ions and protons at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). PHENIX’s ultimate goal is to study a theoretical new state of matter, the quark-gluon plasma. Dr. He’s other current research concerns the study of cosmic ray radiation.
