Indara Suarez Receives DOE Early Career Award
Professor Indara Suarez of BU’s Physics Department has just received a five-year, $750,000 Early Career Award from the Department of Energy. The goal of the award is to bolster the nation’s scientific workforce by providing support to exceptional researchers during the crucial early career years. Indara’s project, “Discovery in the 4th Dimension: Shining Light on the Dark Sector,” plans to utilize the data acquired by the CMS (Compact Muon Solenoid) experiment at the LHC to search for long-lived particles by exploiting the capabilities of sensitive muon detectors and using artificial intelligence to develop novel computational tools and methods to advance the studies.
