Graduate Student Spotlight- Matthew Longmire
Matthew Longmire grew up on his family farm in Clinton, TN, so it was no surprise that he became interested in research on agricultural systems. The fact that he can do this while incorporating another life-long fascination—bugs—is just the icing on the cake. Longmire is a graduate student in entomology and plant pathology at the UT Institute of Agriculture, and his research studies the impact of cover crops on agricultural pest management. The use of cover crops is an agricultural practice that can reduce the need for chemical fertilizers and herbicides, which can lower costs and increase profits.

UT physics professor Geoff Greene
Geoff Greene’s lifetime is inextricably linked to that of the neutron. His tireless pursuit of this scientific mystery—finding out how long a neutron lives and what that reveals about the weak force, the Big Bang, and other fundamentals of science—has earned him the Tom W. Bonner Prize from the American Physical Society. 
Veterinarian providing care to dog
Jian Liu invests a magnitude of his time in very small systems. His research has won the assistant professor a variety of accolades, and the most recent addition to that list is the Office of Naval Research (ONR) Young Investigator award, which recognizes outstanding early-career scientists to encourage teaching and research.
UT will once again have a presence in space in 2021, as NASA astronaut Barry “Butch” Wilmore has been bumped up to the flight crew of the inaugural launch of the CST Starliner, NASA’s latest crewed vehicle. Wilmore earned his master’s degree in aviation systems from UT Knoxville through the UT Space Institute in 1994.
