Professor Sarah Demers elected to Fellowship in the American Physical Society

October 27, 2023

Sarah Demers, professor of physics, director of undergraduate studies, and a member of Yale’s Wright Lab, has been elected as a Fellow of  the American Physical Society  (APS) for her contributions and leadership in ATLAS and the physics community. Her citation states:

For important contributions to tau lepton triggering and identification and using the tau signature in the study of Higgs production and decay, and for important leadership both within the ATLAS collaboration and the broader physics community.

The APS is one of the premier professional associations for researchers in the physical sciences. Election to Fellowship is limited to no more than one half of one percent of the membership and represents peer recognition for outstanding contributions to physics.

The APS Fellowship Program was created to recognize members who may have made advances in physics through original research and publication, or made significant innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology. They may also have made significant contributions to the teaching of physics or service and participation in the activities of the Society.
