Wei Tang, a postdoc with Assistant Professor Sowjanya Gollapinni’s group (http://www.phys.utk.edu/people/faculty/gollapinni.html), has won a Neutrino Physics Center (NPC) fellowship from Fermilab. His primary responsibilities will be leading the detector controls and monitoring efforts for the Short-Baseline Near Detector (SBND) experiment and the data production activities for MicroBooNE, along with physics analysis activities.
Tang earned a PhD from Ohio University in experimental nuclear and particle physics. Prior to joining the Gollapinni group in May 2017 he worked on the Daya Bay Neutrino Experiments in China.
Located in Batavia, Illionis, Fermilab is the country’s primary particle physics and accelerator laboratory. The laboratory’s mission is to solve the mysteries of matter, energy, space and time for the benefit of all. The Neutrino Physics Center is dedicated to bringing international expertise to Fermilab to expand the neutrino program. To support that goal, the NPC offers fellowships for students, postdocs, and senior researchers.
Congratulations to Wei on winning this fellowship!
