Lee Roberts is Professor of Physics at Boston University. His undergraduate degree is from the University of Virginia, and his Ph.D. is from the College of William and Mary. He held postdoctoral positions at the Rutherford High Energy Laboratory (now the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory) and the MIT Laboratory for Nuclear Science, before moving to Boston University.  He played a leadership role in the Brookhaven Muon g-2 experiment E821 from 1989 until 2007 and, more recently, in the new Fermilab g-2 experiment E989.


Zeroing in on the Muon’s Magnetism

A theoretical reevaluation of the muon’s magnetic moment gives the highest precision prediction so far, while doubling down on a discrepancy with experiments. Read More »
