Dr. Jorge Piekarewicz

Professor, Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania, 1985


Prof. Piekarewicz received his Ph.D. in theoretical nuclear physics from the University of Pennsylvania in 1985, and carried out postdoctoral research at the California Institute of Technology and Indiana University. In 1990 he joined FSU where he has been ever since.

Jorge's main research interests focus on the behavior of nuclear matter under extreme conditions of density, such as those found in the interior of neutron stars. One of the main goals of his research is to use physical observables that may be determined from terrestrial experiments to constrain the properties of neutron stars. Conversely, he aims to incorporate observations from new telescopes operating at a variety of wavelengths - and that have turned neutron stars from theoretical curiosities into powerful tools - to elucidate the structure of nuclear matter at the extremes.
