Research institute selects Jackson State physics professor as scholar

Jackson State University physics professor Serguei Goupalov has been named a KITP scholar by the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

An assistant professor of physics in the Department of Physics, Atmospheric Sciences and Geoscience, Goupalov conducts research in physics of low-dimensional systems such as carbon nanotubes and semiconductor quantum dots.

KITP is one of the most renowned institutes for theoretical physics in the world. It was founded in 1979 by Nobel Prize laureate Walter Kohn and is currently directed by Nobel laureate David Gross.

Goupalov will serve as a KITP scholar from 2010-2012. He will participate in a program for visiting researchers in theoretical physics during the summers of his award period. The purpose of the program is to support the research efforts of faculty at non-major-research institutions through extended stays at KITP during the summer months.

Goupalov was chosen as a KITP scholar along with six other scientists.
“The selection committee was very impressed by Dr. Goupalov’s application,” said KITP director David Gross in statement.
