Leah Welty-Rieger got her PhD from the University of Indiana on the D0 experiment. After a year as a web designer she joined the Schellman group as a postdoc. While at Northwestern she independently applied for and received a URA Fellowship to join the g-2 magnetic moment experiment. She now works part-time as a GEANT consultant for the g-2 experiment at Fermilab.

ALUMNI: Tim Andeen, PhD 2009
Tim Andeen received his doctorate for work on the D0 experiment at Fermilab in 2008. His thesis, `Measurement of the W Boson Mass with the D0 Run II Detector using the Electron PT Spectrum’ used a precision measurement of the W boson mass to make tight constraints on the mass of the Higgs boson, several years before the Higgs was finally discovered. He then went to Columbia University as a postdoc and research associate on the ATLAS experiment at CERN. He will start as an Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of Texas, Austin in Fall 2015.
