2021 Graduate Achievement Award recipient
With her internationally recognized work on the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), “Meghna Bhattacharya has been a critical player in the successful execution of probably the world’s single most important HEP [High-Energy Physics] experiment in the last several years,” said Breese Quinn, professor of physics and director of the Multimessenger Astrophysics Center.
“Meghna has accomplished much in each major area of particle physics work: academics, hardware, software, analysis, leadership, and communication. She is broadly trained and ready to lead new research efforts in neutrino physics. She has received multiple postdoc offers and has accepted one in the Scientific Computing Division of Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. Top programs across the country have recognized what we already know: Meghna is truly an exceptional student who has already made major contributions to the field and has the potential to accomplish much, much more as her career progresses.”
