YITP Associate Sally Dawson of Brookhaven Lab recognized with special DOE Award

E-mail Print PDF

Sally Dawson of BNL has been recognized as a DOE Distinguished Scientists Fellow, one of five nationally.   This program was established by the America COMPETES Act, to support discovery science at National Laboratories.    Sally’s many contributions to particle theory, especially to the theory of the production of the Higgs Boson, are widely known and very influential.   The YITP is proud that Sally has served for a long time as an advisor and collaborator of YITP students.   Her most recent paper with a YITP student is from September, 2019:  “QCD Corrections in SMEFT Fits to WZ and WW production”, in collaboration with Sam Homiller.  Sally will receive $1M in research funding over the next three years to continue her work.

[View the ceremony!]

The Breakthrough Prize cites the “powerful influence" of the supergravity formalism, which provided the first quantum field theory that truly unified gravity with the strong, electromagnetic and weak forces of the Standard Model.   It has served as a link from string theory to many realms of physics and mathematics, with applications to condensed matter and nuclear physics.

This award is only the fifth Special Breakthrough Prize, a category in its own right, and the invention of Supergravity joins the discoveries of gravitational waves, of pulsars, of the Higgs boson, and those of Stephen Hawking, in receiving this recognition.

Connor joins the list of YITP doctoral students who have won the President’s Award for Distinguished Doctoral Research.

https://grad.stonybrook.edu/awards/President_Doctoral.php

Many more YITP students have done distinguished research than can receive this award, but Connor is the seventh YITP winner in the past ten years.   He was preceded since 2006 by Wolfger Peelars (2016), Mao Zeng (2016), Matt von Hippel (2014), Abhijit Gadde (2012), Leandro Almeida (2010) and Ilmo Sung (2010). Our list of even-earlier winners includes Carola Berger (2003), Shu-Chiuan Chang, (2002),  Gianluca Oderda (1999), Shan-Ho Tsai (1998) and Alexander Kusenko (1994).
