Elizabeth Worcester is a physicist at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), New York. She completed her undergraduate studies at the Georgia Institute of Technology and earned her PhD from the University of Chicago for the study of matter–antimatter differences in kaon decay. After completing her PhD, she spent several years at home with her young children. Since joining BNL in 2011, she has worked primarily on neutrino experiments, including Daya Bay, ICARUS, SBND, and the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). She was one of the conveners of the Snowmass Neutrino Frontier from 2020 to 2022, is a member of the Fermilab Physics Advisory Committee, and is one of the oscillation working group conveners in the SBN Analysis Group.


Neutrino Mystery Endures

New neutrino-oscillation data show no sign of an anomalous signal seen in previous studies, but the analyses can’t yet fully rule out its presence. Read More »


The Dawn of Collider Neutrino Physics

The first observation of neutrinos produced at a particle collider opens a new field of study and offers ways to test the limits of the standard model. Read More »
