Professor Beck and his group concentrate on understanding the most complicated atoms; the transition metal, lanthanide, and actinide series. These pose a large computational challenge to existing theory and require the simultaneous inclusion of relativistic and correlation (many body) effects. These atoms are technologically important in solid state and fusion . . .

My research interests focus on understanding the origin of the highest energy cosmic rays. Cosmic rays with energies in excess of 1020eV have been observed striking Earth's atmosphere; these particles are the most energetic known in our universe, with more than 100 million times the energy produced at the largest . . .
