Kansas State University
Willie the Wildcat
COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
WORLDWIDE PARTICLE PHYSICS COLLABORATIONS:
ArgoNeuT, CMS, Double Chooz (IN2P3), LBNE, MicroBooNE
NUMBER OF SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS INVOLVED:
Six faculty, three postdocs, 11 graduate students
PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
The group is very active in theoretical cosmology and astrophysics. The group is pursuing experimental work at both the Intensity and Energy frontiers, including measuring neutrino mixing angle θ13, studying the newly discovered boson at CMS, building next-generation neutrino experiments and upgrading the CMS detector.
WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT KANSAS STATE APART?
Kansas State University is a graduate university with a very active and energetic high-energy physics group with a very strong publication and funding record. Our faculty and research members spend significant periods of time at Fermilab and CERN, thus enhancing interaction with our U.S. and international colleagues.
