The life and times of a female researcher in nuclear physics
Monday, March 26, 2012
It isn't much in the grander scheme of things, but a little bit of good news: my facility, the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility, will continue operations for an additional two weeks to complete high-priority experiments.
I'm a postdoc in low energy nuclear astrophysics, currently doing research in collaboration with groups across the northern hemisphere. I have a PhD in Applied Physics and a BS in Engineering Physics from well-renowned college in Colorado, have performed with several semi-professional orchestras, once was a park ranger, and read voraciously.
Oderint dum metuant (did I mention I also studied Latin?).
