Ernest Rutherford Fellowship success for Dr Cheryl Patrick

Congratulations to Dr Cheryl Patrick who has been awarded an Ernest Rutherford Fellowship.

The STFC (Science and Technology Facilities Council) Ernest Rutherford Fellowships enable early career researchers with clear leadership potential to establish a strong, independent research programme. We are pleased that successful candidate Dr Patrick will be starting with us in October.

Dr Patrick will be based in the School’s Institute for Particle & Nuclear Physics.  Her research focuses on neutrinos: light, neutral particles with behaviours beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. As we can only learn about neutrinos through their interactions with matter, she’ll be studying how nuclei affect our understanding of neutrinos in various experiments, and how those experiments might be able to help each other.
