Emma Rosenfeld named Clare Boothe Luce Scholar

April 10, 2013

Emma Rosenfeld, a junior Physics major, has been named a Clare Boothe Luce Scholar for summer 2013. The award supports undergraduate research projects undertaken by female US citizens. Emma will be working with the Boston University ATLAS group to develop procedures for building and operating a new type of particle detector, called Micromegas. The Micromegas will be used to measure properties of muons produced in collisions at the Large Hadron Collider, and will help to fully explore the characteristics of the recently discovered Higgs boson.
