Professor Georgia Karagiorgi was named a recipient of the Provost's Grants Program for Junior Faculty who Contribute to the Diversity Goals of the University.
This competitive grants program is designed to contribute to the career success of junior faculty. Applications are reviewed by a committee of faculty from both the Morningside and Medical Center campuses.
Professor Karagiorgi’s research involves neutrino phenomenology and the search for new physics through short- and long-baseline liquid argon neutrino experiments. Those include MicroBooNE and SBND, which are part of the Fermilab Short Baseline Neutrino Programme, and the long-baseline neutrino experiment DUNE. Through those projects, Georgia is also involved in liquid-argon TPC (LArTPC) detector development and construction.
