Enormous scientific collaborations are made up of hundreds upon thousands of individuals, each with their own story. Online collections of profiles, such as Faces of DUNE, the Dark Energy Survey’s Scientist of the Week blog and Humans of LIGO, reveal the sometimes-ignored human sides of scientists.
Fermilab is America’s particle physics and accelerator laboratory. Our vision is to solve the mysteries of matter, energy, space and time for the benefit of all.
Currently a councilor of the American Physical Society Forum on International Physics, Barzi is adding to her contributions to APS. Her memberships in the APS Council committees reflect her commitment to promote knowledge of physics throughout the U.S. and the world.
Grassellino will help lead the lab’s exciting portfolio for advancing the key technologies in high-energy physics and help oversee the realization of important accelerator projects.
Fermilab News looks back at 10 ways Fermilab researchers advanced science and technology in 2019, from the physics of particles to the motion of the cosmos. This year brought us groundbreakings, breakthroughs, a world record and awards. Look back at 2019 in this year-end roundup.
Mingzhi Shen’s career started in finance. Then he discovered that he enjoyed working with numbers in a different way, and he joined Fermilab as a network analyst.
Come and hear McDonald talk about how deep underground experiments help address fundamental questions about neutrino properties and search for dark matter, which makes up 26% of our universe.
Fermilab in the news
