Two graduate students in Professor Mike Mooney’s research group, Ivan Caro Terrazas and Justin Mueller, were recently awarded funding to reside at Fermilab (near Chicago, Illinois) for roughly six months to perform research in experimental particle physics. The awards were given out by the Universities Research Association (URA) through the Visiting Scholars Program, which was established in 2007 to support the work of faculty and students from URA institutions to work at Fermilab for extended periods of time. The URA Visiting Scholars Program is supported by contributions from the URA-member universities.  Ivan and Justin will work on the MicroBooNE, ICARUS, and DUNE experiments, all of which are seeking to understand more about the properties of the ghost-like particle known as the neutrino.
