    Alumnus Jonathan Hoffman Heads Toward New Horizon in Navigation Science

    February 24, 2023

    As a PhD graduation present, UMD physics alumnus Jonathan Hoffman’s adviser gave him a signed copy of the book Longitude: The True Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time. The book follows John Harrison, an 18th-century carpenter who took it upon himself to solve what was known as the longitude problem by building a series of 5 clocks, the best timekeepers to date. Eight years later, as a program manager at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Hoffman has started a new program called H6 seeking to build a spiritual successor to Harrison’s clocks: a “6th clock” that would be a compact, affordable, and precise device that would help navigate in situations where a GPS signal is unavailable.

    Recent Physics Grad Sees Many Roads Ahead

    September 13, 2022

    As Jeffrey Wack walked across the graduation stage in May 2022, he carried with him a lot of uncertainty about where to go next. His trepidation came from his voracious curiosity for a broad range of things, primarily within physics and math—the subjects of his two degrees—but also from his interests in teaching, outreach and music. The prospect of having to pick just one path forward felt confining to Wack. But that same curiosity served him extremely well during his time at the University of Maryland, and it left him with many opportunities for next steps.
