Gene Fisk retired on Oct. 7, but he wants to see two Fermilab projects through to completion. The former DZero department deputy head and scientist out of the Experimental Physics Projects Detector R&D hopes to continue his research at the laboratory on a part-time emeritus basis.
The first is DZero, which he has been involved with since 1984. The second is a study looking at photon detection for the measurement of muons.
“We still have five years of data analysis, now that the Tevatron shut down,” Fisk said. “There certainly is stuff to do.”
Fisk left an academic career at Carnegie Mellon University to come work at Fermilab in 1972. Since then, he worked primarily with CDF and DZero.
