Past Fellows

The first David Schramm Fellow was John Beacom (2000-2004), currently Assistant Professor at Ohio State University. Beacom received his PhD from University of Wisconsin, Madison (1997) and then was Sherman Fairchild Postdoctoral Scholar at Caltech (1997-2000) before coming to Fermilab. Beacom's research focused on all aspects of neutrinos, especially astrophysical signatures.

The second Fellow was Jochen Weller (2004-2005), now Lecturer at University College London. Weller received his PhD from Imperial College (2000) under the supervision of Andy Albrecht, did postdoctoral stints at Cambridge (2000-2004) before arriving at Fermilab in Fall 2004. His research focuses on all aspects of dark energy, from detection to theoretical modeling.

The third Fellow was Dan Hooper (2005-2007), now a Scientist at Fermilab. Hooper received his PhD from the University of Wisconsin (2003) under the supervision of Frances Halzen, and did a postdoctoral stint at Oxford before arriving at Fermilab in Fall 2005. His research focuses on interface between particle physics and cosmology. He has written two popular books Natures Blueprint and Dark Cosmos.

The fourth Fellow was Kathryn Zurek (2007-2008), now an assistant professor at the University of Michigan. Zurek received her PhD from the University of Washington (2006) under the supervision of David B. Kaplan, and did a postdoc at the University of Wisconsin before arriving at Fermilab in Fall 2007. Her research focuses on particle physics model building especially for dark matter.

The fifth Fellow was Matthew Buckley (2010-2013), now research faculty at Rutgers University. Buckley received his PhD in theoretical physics from the University of California at Berkeley (2008), and was DuBridge Prize Fellow in theoretical physics at Caltech before coming to Fermilab. His research focuses on collider phenomenology and dark matter theory.
