A trip to Cuba for a summer school and two back-to-back international research conferences has been concluded - with great success as it turns out. Matthias Kaminski traveled to Havana, Cuba on May 2nd and lectured at a summer school at the Institute for Cybernetics, Physics and Mathematics (ICIMAF) in Havana about holography. He also presented our research on chiral magnetic transport and charged magnetic black branes at the first of two conferences, STARS2017 and SMFNS2017 (May 7-13). Lectures and the talk were very well received and lead to fruitful conversations with local and international physicists during and after the presentations. Students and faculty in Cuba were very welcoming and common research interests lead to many interesting discussions - some of which are ongoing.
Our PhD student Casey Cartwright has received the graduate council fellowship (GCF) supporting him to study and perform research for 12 months. Congratulations!

Results from our recent preprint were just published in the Journal of High Energy Physics (JHEP). This work was conducted in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Martin Ammon and Julian Leiber from Jena University in Germany. Julian Leiber was visiting us at UA as an international graduate research exchange student (IGREP) for six weeks during Fall 2016. Kaminski, Koirala, and Wu visited Jena University for a week in Summer 2016. The published paper can be found here.

Results from our recent preprint published with collaborators from Jena University was presented at this year's meeting of the American Physical Society. The slide to the talk can be found here.
Our proceeding paper with Nobel Laureate Gerard 't Hooft just appeared on the arXiv preprint server. Dr. ’t Hooft was awarded the Nobel price for "elucidating the quantum structure of electroweak interactions in physics”. In our recent publication "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Gravity and Information" we address some of today's most fundamental questions of theoretical physics in search for the correct formulation of quantum gravity. The paper was accepted for publication in the journal "Springer Proceedings in Physics".
I am very happy to be appointed a member of the advisory board of the German Academics International Network (GAIN) for 4 years.
