Joseph Formaggio received his B.S. degree at Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA, in physics in 1996. Thereafter, he received his Ph.D. in physics from Columbia University, New York, NY, USA, where he did his dissertation on neutrino physics by analyzing data taken at the NuTeV experiment located at the Fermi National Laboratory. His research focused on searches for exotic particles predicted by certain theoretical extensions of the standard model of particle physics. In 2001, he joined the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA, where he was later appointed as a Research Assistant Professor. Since 2005, he has moved to Boston, where he teaches at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is active in the SNO experiment, as well as the upcoming KATRIN neutrino mass experiment.
