    TALLAHASSEE - Charles A. Weatherford, Ph.D., recently appointed as the vice president for research at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU), has also been elected and received distinction as a 2019 Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS).

    According to the award letter from APS President David Gross, Weatherford was elected, "for the innovative development and application of numerical techniques to few-body systems and for passionate commitment to educating and mentoring African-American men and women."

    "It's a great honor to be elected...less than one percent of APS members can be a fellow at any time. This is not only a great honor for me and Florida A&M University, but for the students as well," said Weatherford.

    He also said being named an APS Fellow is significant due to the honor bringing recognition to the science—specifically physics— being studied at FAMU, as well as the major contributions of the students conducting the research.

    APS officially announced Weatherford as a fellow on Thursday, September 19. Weatherford and FAMU are listed in APS Fellow Archive, and he will also be featured in the December edition of APS News.

    The American Physical Society (APS) is a nonprofit membership organization working to advance the knowledge of physics. Headquartered in College Park, Maryland, APS represents over 55,000 members, including physics in academia, national laboratories and industry in the United States and throughout the world.

    Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) is a land-grant institution dedicated to the advancement of knowledge, resolution of complex issues and the empowerment of citizens and communities. FAMU’s distinction as a doctoral/research institution will continue to provide mechanisms to address emerging issues through local and global partnerships. Expanding upon the university’s land-grand status, it will enhance the lives of constituents through innovative research, engaging cooperative extension and public service.

    The Office of the Provost serves FAMU by supporting the university’s mission and vision by enhancing student success through an exceptional academic experience.
