Simmons will review the current status of women in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. She will also discuss the social science research illuminating a variety of underlying causes for gender disparities and lay out concrete actions that can improve gender diversity.

Simmons is a particle theorist and a university distinguished professor of physics in the Michigan State University Department of Physics. Her current studies focus on how physics beyond the Standard Model might manifest itself in experiments at the LHC.
