The College of Arts & Sciences
As the academic heart of Texas A&M, the College of Arts & Sciences will provide world-class teaching, research, service, & resources.
During her interview with CBS News, Dr. Tatiana Erukhimova revealed how she made it her mission to show students everywhere the magic of physics — and that there are no limits when they are in her class.
Taylor Hutchison recently graduated from Texas A&M with a Ph.D. in astronomy and landed a new exciting role as an astrophysicist at NASA where she analyzes galaxies at lower redshifts (z~1-4) and uses state-of-the-art instrumentation on JWST to carry out her research.

Astrophysicist at NASA
After 17 years of dedicated service to the astronomy program at Texas A&M, we want to express our deep appreciation for his outstanding contributions. His commitment to teaching ASTR 101, the most sought-after astronomy course in the department, has left an indelible mark on our students, and we are grateful for the passion and expertise he has shared with so many.
Texas A&M University invites audiences across Texas, the nation and the world to get up-close and personal with science and technology outreach at the 2023 Physics and Engineering Festival, set for Saturday, April 1, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the George P. Mitchell '40 Physics Building on the Texas A&M campus.
On being selected as a 2023 AAS Fellow. With this award, you are recognized for your contributions to the foundation of supernova cosmology, the discovery of the universe's accelerated expansion, and precise measurements of the Hubble-Lemaître flow.
On receiving the Gathright Scholar 2022 Award which acknowledges your outstanding academic excellence and honorary achievements. Please join us in congratulating Connor.
The Physics & Astronomy SPS chapter has received national recognition as an outstanding/distinguished chapter for the third time in a row! Congratulations to all SPS members and faculty who contributed to this effort. Thank you to Dr. Belyanin, who steered the team toward this accomplishment.
Society of Physics Students
Dr. Rapp, a University Professor in the Physics and Astronomy Department at Texas A&M University and a member of the Cyclotron Institute since 2003, is a world authority on high energy nuclear physics. His research group examines the earliest moments of our universe by studying how high densities and temperatures interact.
Kelli Humbird worked with Dr. Scully during the spring of 2014 before beginning an M.S. program at Rice in Fall 2014. She came back to TAMU and got her M.S. and Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering and now works as a design physicist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). She and her research team created a successful nuclear fusion experiment that was presented to Dr. Marvin Adam, the National Nuclear Security Administration's Deputy Administrator for Defense Programs.

Watch Dr. Tatiana Erukhimova's interview with ABC News to learn how and why she began her journey in physics outreach which is now enjoyed by millions of people around the world.
Excellence in Teaching
Physicists and astronomers use analytical thinking and a strong understanding of the fundamental laws of nature to describe the world around us, from the smallest particle to our galaxy and universe.
