Northwestern University

NAME:
Northwestern University

HOME TOWN:
Evanston, Ill.

MASCOT:
Wildcat

SCHOOL COLORS:
Purple and white

COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
1975

WORLDWIDE PARTICLE PHYSICS COLLABORATIONS:
CDF, CLEO (Cornell), CMS (CERN), COUPP, DZero, MINERvA, Muon g-2, NA61 (CERN), PANDA (FAIR)

NUMBER OF SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS INVOLVED:
Nine faculty, eight postdocs, 16 graduate students

PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
The theory group studies neutrinos, g-2, quantum chromodynamics, Higgs physics and physics beyond the Standard Model. Experiments include hadronic physics research and searches for glueballs, neutrino cross-section measurements, precision measurements of electroweak properties from g-2 to the W mass, Higgs searches and searches for new physics at all energies.

WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT NORTHWESTERN APART?
We are only an hour’s drive from Fermilab (and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport) and have three faculty with joint positions at Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab.

FUNDING AGENCIES:
DOE Office of High Energy Physics, DOE Office of Nuclear Physics, NSF, Simons Foundation
