From working at the CIA to designing science facilities at Fermilab, Kate Sienkiewicz enjoys tackling complex problems. Currently, she oversees the team tasked with designing and building conventional facilities at the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility near site for the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment — all with the overarching goal of understanding the universe.
From D La Repubblica, Dec. 10, 2020: È italiana, ha solo 39 anni, è Deputy Chief Technology Officer al Fermilab di Chicago, dove sta progettando il computer quantico più potente mai creato al mondo. Incontro di Valeria Palermi, direttrice di D, con Anna Grassellino, Donna dell’Anno 2020.
From Clarin, Oct. 29, 2020: Cuando era chico, Javier Tiffenberg exploraba las profundidades de los océanos a bordo del Calypso. Si quería ir más lejos, cerraba la escotilla de una nave espacial y se lanzaba a recorrer galaxias brumosas. Sólo era cuestión de sumergirse en El mundo submarino, de Jacques Cousteau, o de sintonizar Cosmos, de Carl Sagan.
From Next Avenue, Oct. 26, 2020: Many older scientists stay on the job for reasons such as greater flexibility to do their work, ongoing funding for research projects and just an inherent love of science. Fermilab scientist emeritus Chris Quigg is one of three impressive researchers featured in this article on scientists over 65.
Bernstein is overseeing the Fermilab Mu2e experiment as it moves from its construction to installation phase and into a running experiment. A collaboration of nearly 250 scientists at 40 institutions that had to invent technology to get to this point, Mu2e is in an exciting phase, especially for early-career researchers who will not only construct the experiment, but also analyze the data.
From University of Chicago, Sept. 24, 2020: In his new role, de Pablo — currently the Vice President for National Laboratories — will help drive and support the university’s science, technology and innovation efforts, along with their connection to policy and industry. He will also help shape emerging strategic scientific and technological initiatives and provide oversight of entrepreneurship and innovation activities at the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
A scientist, avid runner and Cajun food cook, Bryan Ramson is helping solve the universe’s mysteries as a member of two Fermilab-hosted neutrino experiments: NOvA and the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. Eager to share the joy of science with others, Ramson is active in physics outreach in the Chicago community.
