Jane M. Burward-Hoy
Jane M. Burward-Hoy received her Ph.D. degree in high-energy nuclear physics at Stony Brook University in 2001. Also in 2001, she was awarded the Gertrude Scharff-Goldhaber Prize for Outstanding Research, and in 1998, she received The David Fox Prize for Outstanding Teacher Assistant. In 2002, Dr. Burward-Hoy was awarded the RHIC/AGS Thesis Award by Batelle Memorial Institute and Stony Brook University. Upon receiving her Doctoral degree, Dr. Burward-Hoy worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the High Energy Physics Group at Lawrence Livermore National Security in the area of hadron physics and Bose-Einstein Correlations at relativistic energies for the PHENIX experiment. She presented her work in a Plenary Session in Quark Matter in Nantes, France. As a Postdoctoral Researcher at Los Alamos National Laboratory in the Subatomic Physics Group until 2004, she worked on J/Psi physics in p-Au collisions for the PHENIX experiment. Dr. Burward-Hoy is presently a Staff Scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory and is a Principal Investigator for a particle instrument in the Space Science and Applications Group. She has extensive knowledge in both modeling and instrument design for the detection of energetic particles in a radiation environment. Her current experience includes writing technology development proposals, delivering products to sponsors, presenting results to audiences with a wide range of expertise, and meeting milestones within an awarded budget. Dr. Burward-Hoy is a Member of both APS and AGU, and she has presented her work on numerous occasions at the annual meetings of these societies.
