Patricia McBride is a Distinguished Scientist at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and director of the Fermilab Particle Physics Division. She also led Fermilab’s scientific computing program as deputy head of the laboratory’s Computing Division from 2007-2011.
Dr. McBride is a collaborator on the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland and has been a leader of the Fermilab effort on CMS. She managed the U.S. CMS Operations Program that oversees the U.S. contributions to the CMS experiment and coordinated the commissioning of the fifty computer centers worldwide that provide large scale computing resources for the international CMS collaboration.
She received her B.S. degree in Physics from Carnegie Mellon University and her PhD in Physics from Yale University. She served as chair of the Division of Particles and Fields of the American Physical Society (APS) and was a member of the APS Public Policy Committee. She also chaired the U.S. Liaison Committee of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) and served as Chair of the IUPAP C11 Commission for Particles and Fields. She was a Vice President of the IUPAP Executive Council and was elected an APS Fellow and an AAAS Fellow in 2010. She is currently a member of the AURA Management Council for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) that is under construction in Chile.
