American Physical Society awards Ateneans

A student and a faculty member of the Ateneo de Manila University School of Science and Engineering, Department of Physics have been awarded by the American Physical Society-Forum on International Physics (APS-FIP).
Mr. Jansen Keith L. Domoguen, a 4th year BS Applied Physics with Materials Science Engineering, is given the 2015 Distinguished Student (APS-FIP DS3 Award, making him 1 of the 12 international students of physics to be given the title.
Domoguen will be presenting his research during the Annual APS Meeting, along with the presentation of 1000 other papers on physics by eminent scientists.
The APS gave Domoguen a travel grant of 2500 USD to attend the awarding ceremonies in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA on April 16-19, 2016.
Dr. Joel Tiu Maquiling, Domoguen’s adviser, has also been granted the 2015 APS-FIP Faculty Award. He will present their geophysics research work on the "Suppression of Turbulence using Electrified Granular Matter" and the physics education endeavors of the Philippines during the said APS Meeting.
The APS-FIP is an association interested in the advancement of physics and its many fields including astrophysics, nuclear physics, particles and fields physics, the physics of beams and computational physics. One of its functions is to organize meetings to foster and establish cooperation with physicists all over the world.
