Rockefeller University

NAME:
The Rockefeller University

HOME TOWN:
New York, NY

COLORS:
Blue and gold

COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
1971

WORLDWIDE PARTICLE PHYSICS COLLABORATIONS:
CDF, CMS

NUMBER OF SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS INVOLVED:
Seven scientists

PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
We concentrate in three physics areas: (1) experimental studies of SUSY, dark matter and QCD processes, (2) diffraction physics and (3) development of statistical techniques for use in high-energy physics. In diffraction, we have implemented the MBR (Minimum Bias Rockefeller) phenomenology for diffractive processes in PYTHIA8 for event simulations in CDF and CMS.

WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT THE ROCKEFELLER UNIVERSITY APART?
Located in vibrant Manhattan, The Rockefeller is a graduate university with a long tradition of excellence in particle physics. We devote our time to research, working one-on-one with graduate students and with high-school students through the university’s strong science outreach program. Our faculty and research members may work at Fermilab or CERN at any time of the year, enhancing interaction with colleagues from CDF and CMS.
