Working on Princeton’s campus keeps our staff in close contact with one of the most exciting aspects of the University: cutting-edge research. The Dec. 12 cover story highlights one example, Professor Paul Steinhardt’s adventurous search for a natural quasicrystal. We also share interesting findings in Ideas, a relatively new part of the Campus Notebook section. Amaney Jamal, an associate professor of politics, and engineering collaborators Naveen Verma and Branko Glisic are among the faculty members featured in this issue.
