Christine Aidala

U-M Physics Professor Christine Aidala was recently elected to a Member-at-Large position on the Executive Committee of the American Physical Society (APS) Topical Group on Hadronic Physics. She will serve a two-year term. 

The mission of the APS Topical Group on Hadronic Physics is the advancement and diffusion of knowledge related to quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and QCD bound states. This includes enhancing communication between the separate APS Divisions of Particle and Nuclear Physics.  Professor Aidala has been a member of both Divisions since 1998. Her current research at the border between nuclear and particle physics provides the perfect background for her new leadership role. As a member of the Executive Committee, she hopes to help the still-young Group on Hadronic Physics continue expanding its membership and raising the prominence of hadronic physics and QCD in the U.S., ensuring the continued vibrancy of the field.
