Discover Magazine Features LSU Research Projects

BATON ROUGE – LSU faculty accomplishments get more impressive each year, with bigger grants, awards and discoveries being announced all the time. Last year was no exception, proving to be a banner year for three LSU researchers whose work has been featured in Discover Magazine’s Top 100 Stories of 2013.

“We selected the top 100 stories based in part on each item’s impact and implications on its particular field,” said Steve George, editor of Discover.

Brent Christner, associate professor of biological sciences; Thomas Kutter, professor of physics and astronomy; and Martin Tzanov, assistant professor of physics, conducted research recognized in the magazine’s annual listings.

Christner’s work on the exploration of lakes beneath Antarctica’s ice sheet came in at number 12 in the list. His groundbreaking work in this arena has been attracting international attention for years, and this is his second time being featured in Discover’s Top 100.
