Exhibit Offers Unique Look at Surgery

Scientist's Work Puts 'Quantum Cat' to the Test
New Scientist, one of the world's largest general-interest science magazines, recently featured the research of Andrew Jordan, assistant professor of physics, on its cover. The cover image of a cat fading into ethereality speaks to Jordan's work exploring a quirk of quantum physics—an oddity that has long been illustrated by a "quantum cat."

Ieva Gruzina '03 knows her introduction sounds like the start of a joke: A Latvian woman with an American accent who works for the British Chamber of Commerce.... For Gruzina, who has been at the post just under one year, the career move brought her back home to a place that has changed dramatically since she was a girl.
