Priscilla Cushman earned a Ph.D. studying hyperon magnetic moments at Fermilab and then moved to CERN to work on the UA6 experiment. As an assistant professor at Yale University, she joined the Brookhaven g-2 Collaboration and began design work for the new generation of colliders, including a hybrid photodiode for the CMS experiment. She is now a Professor of Physics at the University of Minnesota and spokesperson of the SuperCDMS dark matter detection experiment. She is a fellow of the American Physical Society and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.


Muon’s Escalating Challenge to the Standard Model

Measurements of the muon magnetic moment strengthen a previously reported tension with theoretical predictions, ushering in a new era of precision tests of the standard model. Read More »
