The Distinguished Scientist Promotion Committee, chaired by physicist Beate Heinemann of the German laboratory DESY, has recommended three Fermilab scientists be awarded the title of distinguished scientist in 2020: Brenna Flaugher, Andreas Kronfeld and Lia Merminga.

June 29 marks the 50th anniversary of Curtis Danner joining Fermilab. Congratulations! A jack-of-all-trades, Danner is in charge of the electronics machine shop in the basement of Wilson Hall and maintains the exhibits in the Lederman Science Center. He is always busy designing, building and repairing a variety of electronics for the lab’s experiments. Bonus: June 29 is also his birthday, so a double congratulations, Curtis!

From DOE, June 18, 2020: It’s Pride Month, and several national laboratories have employee resource groups to advance LGBTQ+ individuals equality, inclusion and diversity in the workplace. Fermilab physicist Erica Snider, a member of the LGBTQ+ laboratory resource group Spectrum and the lab’s Scientist Advisory Council, will participate in the panel discussion on June 23 called “A Day in the Life: A Panel Discussion about LGBTQ+ inclusion.”
