Two Fermilab scientists named American Physical Society fellows

The American Physical Society announced the recipients of the 2021 APS Fellowships. Two Fermilab scientists were selected as 2021 APS fellows, a distinction awarded each year to no more than one-half of 1% of current APS members by their peers.

Fermilab heartily congratulates the fellows on this prestigious honor.


Chris Polly

Chris Polly, senior scientist for the Muon g-2 experiment, was honored for his outstanding leadership of the Fermilab Muon g-2 experiment, resulting in the most precise determination of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon.

Sam Zeller

Sam Zeller, deputy division head of the neutrino division, was recognized for her outstanding contributions and intellectual leadership in developing the understanding of GeV neutrino interactions and their importance for past, current and future neutrino oscillation experiments.

The full listing of 2021 fellows can be found on the APS Fellow Archive. The APS fellowship program recognizes members who have made advances in physics through original research and publication or made significant innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology.
