Scientific Computing Ph.D. Studies Parkinson's and Tango


It takes two to dance the Argentine Tango, and as researchers at Florida State University are learnings, that’s all it takes to change a life.

University researchers are proving the tango may have benefits well beyond the dance floor. They’re finding it can help those living with balance disorders, like Parkinson’s Disease, reducing their risk of falling and improving their quality of life.

As they tap and turn, tango dancers move through a series of deliberate, rhythmic movements. Each spin is blend of symmetry and the power of healing.

“You’re in the arms of your partner, you’re supporting on another,” said Florida State’s Dr. Nathan Crock. “It’s a nice analogy for what it’s like to have someone supporting you as you take that first step.”

FSU computational mathematician recognized among the world’s most influential researchers

An applied and computational mathematician in the Department of Scientific Computing at Florida State University has been named one of the world’s most influential researchers by a prominent global citation database.

Max Gunzburger

Web of Science, a platform that includes nearly 1.9 billion cited references from more than 171 million records, noted Max Gunzburger, Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor and Krafft Professor of Scientific Computing, was among a select few researchers most frequently cited by their peers over the past decade.

FSU computational scientist demonstrates how supernovae detonate

The mystery of how supernovae fully form and function is one of many secrets of the universe that scientists have yet to unravel, but new work by a Florida State University research team has used theory and computations to show how one class of these luminous stellar explosions go from a slow burn to a brilliant detonation.

Their work is published today in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Max Gunzburger

Professor Max Gunzburger has been named by Web of Science as one of the world’s most influential researchers. Gunzburger is among the select few who have been most frequently cited by their peers over the last decade. In 2020, fewer than 6,200, or about 0.1% of the world's researchers in 21 research fields and across multiple fields, have earned this exclusive distinction.
