What’s on the Front Lines of Discovery for Particle Physics?
January 10, 3:30–4:15 PM EST
Distinguished Lecturer Sally C. Seidel is a faculty member of the University of New Mexico’s Collider Physics Group, whose primary goal is an improved understanding of heavy quark bound states. These studies increase understanding of the strong force, one of the four fundamental forces of nature. The group’s work requires that they collect and analyze data at the Large Hadron Collider and other experimental facilities.
