Vishvas Pandey, a UF physics postdoc who has been collaborating on the Coherent CAPTAIN-Mills at Los Alamos (CCM) and Short-Baseline Near Detector at Fermilab (SBND) experiments with Professor Heather Ray, was recently awarded the Wilson Fellowship at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. With the Wilson Fellowship, Vishvas will be taking an Associate Scientist position at Fermilab. Vishvas is currently the only postdoctoral researcher at UF to receive this honor.
The Wilson Fellowship is awarded on a competitive basis and is intended to support outstanding assistant professor-level physicists early in their careers. It provides unique opportunities for self-directed research in experimental physics through work on the Fermilab particle physics experiment of the candidate’s choice. The Fermilab experimental program includes collider and cosmic physics, studies of neutrinos, muons, and research at the intersection of high energy physics and quantum information science for future experiments.
Congratulations to Vishvas on this well deserved honor!
