From the American Physics Society, September 14, 2022: This April, Merminga became the new director of Fermilab and the first woman to hold the position. As director, she oversees nearly 2,000 people working on cutting-edge experiments. In this interview with APS News, she discusses her life, career, and views on the future of particle physics.

From Scientific American, September 8, 2022: What came out of Snowmass 2022? In late July, nearly 800 particle physicists met for over 10 days for the once-a-decade Snowmass process to discuss and build a unified scientific vision for the future of particle physics. Find out what Fermilab director Lia Merminga presented and more about discussions around DUNE, diversity, SUSY, the LHC, future colliders and more.

From Prospect, August 29, 2022: The LHC is back running now colliding more intense beams, generating more collisions and collecting more data to sift. Fermilab’s Muon g-2 results offered an intriguing hint about muons that the LHC can follow up on by looking for new particles directly and the behavior it should induce in particles we know about.

From Innovation News Network, February 25, 2022: PIP-II project director Lia Merminga discusses the Fermilab accelerator complex upgrade being done in collaboration with research institutions in India, the UK, Italy, France, and Poland. Read more about the current status of PIP-II project, what it sets out to achieve and the impacts PIP-II will have on the future of particle physics research.
