Name: Boleslaw Wyslouch
Title(s): Professor of Physics
Phone: (617) 253-5431
Assistant: Anna Maria Convertino (617) 253-2391
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Area of Physics:
- Ph.D. 1987, MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (MIT)
Professor Wyslouch studies the interactions between the subatomic particles by looking at the violent collisions of heavy ions. He and his colleagues are hoping to observe the creation of a new state of nuclear matter, the Quark Gluon Plasma.
After completing his undergraduate work in Physics at the University of Warsaw in 1981, Professor Wyslouch began his association with MIT, first as a doctoral student, where he earned a Ph.D. in Physics in 1987. In the same year, he became a postdoctoral fellow at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland. From 1990, he was a Research Associate with MIT's Laboratory for Nuclear Science (LNS), stationed at CERN, before being named an Assistant Professor in 1991. Professor Wyslouch was promoted to Associate Professor without tenure in 1997 and Associate Professor with tenure in July 1998. In July 2002, he was promoted to full Professor.
