Mary Alberg, professor of physics and a member of the SU faculty since 1979, has been named a fellow of the American Physical Society. She was recommended by the APS Division of Nuclear Physics for the honor, which is bestowed to only one half of one percent of the society's membership.
She was cited "for seminal contributions to understanding the sea of the nucleon and other baryons, and her extraordinary service to the physics community."
Alberg's teaching includes a wide variety of physics courses from the introductory level through upper-level nuclear and particle physics. Her research, funded by the National Science Foundation, is in theoretical and phenomenological nuclear physics, including quarks and gluons in protons, neutrons and mesons.
