The Mani L. Bhaumik Institute for Theoretical Physics

The Mani L. Bhaumik Institute for Theoretical Physics has just been established in the Department of Physics and Astronomy thanks to the generosity of Dr. Bhaumik. The Institute is a center for theoretical physics research and intellectual inquiry.

The goal is to provide an exceptional environment for excellence in theoretical physics research. The Institute provides support for postdoctoral researchers and graduate students, brings distinguished scholars to UCLA and organizes workshops and conferences to facilitate the exchange of new ideas. It also promotes outreach to the general community via public lectures and other activities.

The Institute will initially focus primarily on theoretical particle physics but, as funding resources are extended, there are plans to expand its programs into a wider variety of cutting-edge areas of theoretical physics.
