SCIPP postdoctoral researcher Giordon Stark is featured in Physics Today magazine, describing his work to improve the experiences of deaf/hard-of-hearing scientists and the interpreters who support them.
Deaf scientists thrive with interpreters and technology:
Though still underrepresented in STEM, deaf and hard-of-hearing scientists are excelling in their fields and developing ways to more seamlessly communicate with their colleagues.
Recent results from higgsino searches by the ATLAS collaboration have made their way into the CERN Courier. The existence of higgsino particles, predicted by theories of supersymmetry, could provide an explanation for the cosmological dark matter. SCIPPers Matthew Gignac, Bruce Schumm, and Giordon Stark contributed to the development of the disappearing track search and the overall combination of results.
SCIPP Member Bruce Schumm was quoted in a Salon article about new results from a particle physics experiment called Muon g-2.
Why some physicists are skeptical about the muon experiment that hints at “new physics” The Muon g-2 experiment could upend the Standard Model of physics — but some think it may be a fluke. Here’s why
