Dr. Nathaniel Tagg is one of the hundreds of recipients of the Breakthrough prize, and was a collaborator on the experiment that one this year's Nobel prize!  Read about it here.

Professor Receives National Science Foundation grant

Dr. Nathaniel Tagg, associate professor of Physics, received a $113,000 renewal grant from the National Science Foundation for his project, "RUI: Neutrino Experiments with the NuMI Beam." Dr. Tagg and two undergraduate student researchers will study neutrino interactions and oscillations with the NuMI beam at Fermilab, Illinois, using the MINOS and MINERVA experiments. These experiments are large collaborations of over 100 scientists devoted to the study of fundamental particle properties.
