Distinguished Research Professor, Assoc Dean A&S, Ph.D., Tufts University, 1973
Prof. Owens received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Tufts University in 1973. After post-doctoral work at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio he took a second post-doc with the high energy group at FSU in 1976. He joined the faculty at FSU in 1980.
His research interests are in theoretical high energy physics including perturbative calculations using quantum chromodynamics, the determination of parton distributions, and other topics in collider physics, especially processes involving photons.
