RESEARCH INTERESTS:

Professor Tompkins’s research focuses on understanding the relationships which govern matter’s most fundamental constituents. As a member of the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), she utilizes the world’s highest energy person-made particle collisions in order to understand the mechanism that gives particles mass, whether or not our current model of elementary particle interactions is a complete description of nature, and if dark matter can be produced and studied in colliders.

Research Interests

Study of neutrino oscillations using a neutrino beam created at Fermilab in Illinois and an underground detector in northern Minnesota 730 km away. Recent evidence from the Super Kamiokande detector in Japan strongly suggests that neutrinos oscillate (i.e., change from one flavor into another as they travel through space) and hence have mass. The experiment (MINOS) should provide a definitive answer as to whether neutrinos do actually oscillate and, if so, will be able to measure oscillation mode and oscillation parameters.
