Steiner Research Group Funding


National Science Foundation
A NSF CAREER award, PHY 15-54876
The determination of the EOS and superfluid properties of dense matter from observations of isolated and accreting neutron stars using nucleon and hyperon degrees of freedom.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory
A Joint Faculty appointment with ORNL
Equation of state constraints from neutron star mass and radius observations; Determination of the composition of accreted neutron star crusts using nuclear reaction networks

Department of ENERGY
DOE SciDAC grant, DE-SC0018232
The SciDAC4 project entitled "Towards Exascale Astrophysics of Mergers and Supernovae (TEAMS)" is a collaboration among 8 universities and 4 national laboratories. For this grant, we are constructing new equation of state and neutrino opacity libraries for use in simulations of core-collapse supernovae and neutron star mergers. For more information, visit the TEAMS web page.

National Science Foundation
NSF grant AST 19-09490
Constrain the nature of dense nuclear matter and to determine whether NS mergers alone explain the abundances of r-process elements.

NSF Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment
XSEDE Allocation, PHY180052

UTK/ORNL Joint Institute for Computational Sciences
Computing support
Computing support at JICS and collaboration with Od Odbadrakh .

Chandra X-ray Observatory
Chandra Theory Grant, Cycle 19
Studying the effect of exotic matter on thermal states of transiently accreting neutron stars (originally awarded to UTK postdoc Sophia Han)
