Waubonsee Physics Instructor Awarded Grant

For the third consecutive year, Waubonsee Physics Instructor Dr. Pratima Jindal was awarded a United States Compact Muon Solenoid Teacher Fellowship Grant from the National Science Foundation, in partnership with the University of Notre Dame and Fermi Lab.

The grant will be used to offer a two-day workshop for area high school physics teachers, where they will study quark physics and other high-level research.

Jindal has authored or co-authored hundreds of publications, primarily in the field of high energy physics. Prior to teaching at Waubonsee, she worked as a research associate on the Compact Muon Spectrometer Experiment for CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.

She holds a Ph.D. in experimental high energy physics from Panjab University in Chandigarh, India. She also earned from Panjab a Master of Science in physics, a Bachelor of Science in physical sciences and a Bachelor of Education.
