Kate Scholberg

Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Associate Professor of Physics (2008 - 2013)

Prof. Scholberg’s broad research interests include experimental elementary particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. Her main specific interests are in neutrino physics: she studies neutrino oscillations with the Super-Kamiokande experiment, a giant underground water Cherenkov detector located in a mine in the Japanese Alps. She involves as many undergraduate students as possible in her research. In the classroom she explores the use of technology to improve student engagement and learning, with help from the Center for Instructional Technology. A recent successful example has been the use of web surveys for “minute questionnaires”, to enable prompt feedback to student questions and comments.
