Julia Gonski

Julia Gonski is a Ph.D. student and NSF Graduate Research Fellow in the ATLAS group at Harvard University. When not working on jet performance or searching for supersymmetry, Julia is active in science policy and outreach, serving on the Council of the American Physical Society. She also co-directs the blog Particlebites, which summarizes recent publications in high energy physics for all audiences.

What happens when energy goes missing?

Here at ATLAS, we like to consider ourselves pretty decent at tracking down particles. In fact, we do it every day. Just because a proton-proton collision doesn’t produce the next Nobel Prize winning particle doesn’t mean we can ignore it. Teams of physicists are still combing through every single event, rebuilding known particles out of the signals they leave us
