Astrophysics Research

Students working with Dr. Berenji have been involved with computational and observational astrophysics with the Fermi Large Area Telescope. The focus is detecting axions from neutron stars. We study the process a\to 2 \gamma with axions a produced within neutron stars.

Please see the arXiv for Phys Rev D publication:

We are currently working on extended emission of gamma rays around neutron stars produced from axion decays.

Many videos were produced for this flipped class on  Mechanics and Thermodynamics, as the pre-lecture content was mainly videos. In class we focused on problem solving and tutorials, and post-lecture there was MasteringPhysics online homework.  Many review questions were discussed before the quizzes and midterms.  Below is an example of one of the videos.
