|Physics professor’s research is published internationally
Published: June 18, 2012.
Lewis University Physics Assistant Professor Dr. Ryan Hooper’s research was recently published in the 19th Particles and Nuclei International Conference (PANIC11) proceedings. Hooper’s work, “Tevatron Measurements of Electroweak Boson Production” presents measurements of electroweak boson properties, final state particle distributions and charge asymmetries. The measurements were compared to theoretical predictions. Good agreement between measurement and prediction was demonstrated and in some cases the measurements offer additional guidance for future predictions.
Hooper is a collaborator on the D-Zero Experiment at Fermilab. His research interests include: high energy physics, physics pedagogy and diesel engines. Hooper earned his doctoral degree in Experimental High Energy Physics at the University of Notre Dame, master’s degree in Physics at the University of Notre Dame and bachelor’s degree in Physics at Michigan State University.
