Breakthrough Research
***Research conducted in part at MCLA by physics professor Dr. Emily Maher has been named by Physics World as one of the top 10 breakthroughs of 2012. Maher is among a relatively small group of physicists and engineers who are the first to demonstrate communic ations using neutrinos.***

BS Physics, Hendrix College, Conway AR
Ph.D Phyiscs, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities

My research field is experimental particle physics. Specifically I study the neutrino, which is one of the fundamental particles that make up the universe.


I have participated in the following neutrino experiments, which are all based at Fermi National Accelerator Labratory in Batavia, IL:  


  • DONuT (Direct Observation of the Nu Tau)

  • MINOS (Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search)

  • MINERvA (Main INjector ExpeRiment for v-A)


My CV is here.
