Last week was the culmination of the 2023 Syracuse University Research in Physics (SURPh) program. Mitch and Denver each worked with two high school students from the Syracuse City School District on various projects related to experimental particle physics. They were all fantastic, and it was a lot of fun having them around this summer. See the article from SU for more info.
Ohana was back in town last week to officially receive her Doctoral degree, and she was also selected as the Graduate School Marshal for Syracuse University’s 2023 Commencement! It was great to have her back in town for a few days and hear about her current work as a postdoctoral researcher at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
Congrats to Ohana Benevides Rodrigues for being selected as Graduate School marshal for 2023’s Syracuse University Commencement! This honor recognizes her outstanding academic achievement, inspired research, campus and community involvement and Orange spirit and pride. Great job! pic.twitter.com/yfNUGEQs76
Last week we were so happy to host group alumna Jessica Esquivel to tell us about her research on Fermilab muon g-2 in a fantastic colloquium. It was great to have her back on campus!
For our colloquium on April 27th, we welcome SU Physics alumna, Dr. Jessica Esquivel, an Associate Scientist at Fermi National Accelerator Lab and one of the 150 black women with a PhD in physics in the country. She will be discussing her work on the Muon g-2 Experiment. pic.twitter.com/mMUA1C5aMd
Early this month the SBND TPC was moved across the site at Fermilab and into its home. Many Syracuse group members, past and present, have been involved in getting the experiment to this point, so this was an exciting event. Check out the cool video that Fermilab produced showing the move.
