The most complex and difficult problems in fluid dynamics involve transitions among what seem to be relatively stable states. When these systems also involve exothermic nuclear or chemical reactions, the results can be dramatic and unexpected. Such reactive-flow transitions are critical elements in the of physical systems ranging from propulsion, to accidental fuel explosions, to explosions of thermonuclear supernova, and arguably to the primal explosion that created the universe.

Dr. Clausell Mathis will describe research he has done on strategies and methods that physics teachers can use to achieve equitable based instruction through cultural relevance. Clausell will describe research he has done with secondary physics teachers who attempt to incorporate culturally relevant pedagogy features in their classrooms.

Astrophysics has been at the forefront of data-intensive research and data science for decades, but the Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) is about to usher yet a new era in data-intensive astrophysics. The "next-generation" ground-based astronomical survey, LSST will generate 20TB of information-rich optical-imaging data every night for 10 years starting in 2024 (probably...).

Ultra-high-energy cosmic rays remain one of the main scientific objectives of astroparticle physics. On the astrophysics side, the sources accelerating the most energetic Galactic and extragalactic particles are still unknown. On the particle physics side, we do not understand why hadronic interaction models predict too few muons in the atmospheric particle cascades initiated when cosmic-ray nuclei impinge the atmosphere. To address these questions, new techniques and a higher measurement accuracy for the properties of the primary cosmic rays is required.
