Doyeong Kim

Physics Student Named 2021 LPC Graduate Scholar

K-State Physics graduate student Doyeong Kim has been named a 2021 LPC Graduate Scholar. Kim is a Graduate Research Assistant working under the mentorship of Associate Professor Keti Kaadze in the High Energy Physics group.

The LPC Graduate Scholars Program at Fermilab supports exceptional graduate students through a competitive application process. The program supports students to further their dissertation research while working at Fermilab for a year under the supervision of a senior mentor resident.

The award consists of a $30,000 stipend and funding for conference travel, as well as a trip to CERN to present her work during CMS physics week.

Doyeong is working on the CMS experiment at the LHC at CERN, Switzerland. She was based at CERN for the past two years to participate in detector upgrade and operation and finalizing studies on the dataset collected during the second run of the LHC.

Doyeong recently returned to LPC, Fermilab, where she will work on the future upgrade of the CMS detector and on preparation for data analysis with a dataset from the third run of the LHC that will begin in fall 2021.

The LPC Graduate Scholar program is funded by the Department of Energy Office of Science and Fermilab.
