Sam McDermott

I am the Schramm Fellow in the theoretical astrophysics group on the 6th floor at Fermilab.

I defended my graduate thesis at the University of Michigan as the studentĀ of Kathryn M. Zurek in April of 2014. For my final year in grad school, I was a theory student fellow at Fermilab, working with Dan Hooper and the particle group. I went on to a postdoc at the C. N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics at Stony Brook University on Long Island. For undergrad I attended the University of Pennsylvania, where I was a member of the student radio station, WQHS.

My email address is formed by appending fnal dot (or period) gov to the part of the URL after the tilde. And in case it matters to you, my ORC-ID is 0000-0001-5513-1938.

Here are some links of interest for FNAL physics activities:
