Prof. Amy Connolly is originally from Cincinnati, Ohio and completed her B.S. degree in physics from Purdue University in 1996. She earned her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley where she carried out a search for the Higgs Boson decaying to tau leptons with data from the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF). In 2003, she started a postdoc at UCLA working in a field that was in its infancy, using a radio technique to search for ultra-high energy neutrinos. From 2006-2010 she continued work in the same field at University College London (UCL) before returning to Ohio as a professor at The Ohio State University. Her research spans simulation, analysis, instrumentation and theoretical interpretation of experimental results.
