Undergraduate Helps Discover Beautiful Quark Combinations

Bodek research is in the field of experimental high energy physics. For his Ph.D., Bodek worked under Henry Kendall and Jerome Friedmann on the MIT-SLAC deep inelastic electron scattering experiments that provided evidence for the quark structure of matter; the 1990 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Friedman, Kendall and Taylor for these experiments. Bodek's current research interests are in the physics of W's, Z's and dileptons, neutrino physics and neutrino oscillations, deep inelastic scattering and nucleon structure, and quark distributions in nuclei. His current experiments include the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider and the CDF and the MINERvA experiments at Fermilab. Prof. Bodek honors include Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship (1979-81); NSF-JSPS Fellowship, KEK, Japan (1986); Fellow of the American Physical Society (1985), the 2004 University of Rochester Award for Excellence in Graduate Teaching, and the 2004 American Physical Society W.KH. Panofsky Prize in Experimental Particle Physics "For his broad, sustained, and insightful contributions to elucidating the structure of the nucleon, using a wide variety of probes, tools and methods at many laboratories." He is listed by the ISI citation index and one of the highly cited researchers . He served as a project director at the Department of Energy (1990-91), as Associate Chair (1995-98), and Chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy (1998-2007). He is currently on the editorial board of the European Physics Journal C.
