Prof. Haiyan Gao of Duke University will join BNL as the Associate Laboratory Director for Nuclear and Particle Physics

Prof. Haiyan Gao, currently the Henry W. Newson Distinguished Professor of Physics at Duke University, will join the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory as Associate Laboratory Director (ALD) for Nuclear & Particle Physics (NPP) starting on or about June 1, 2021.

Prof. Gao, who has a long history in nuclear physics, will help develop Brookhaven’s collective long-term vision for the next 10 years.  She’ll also work across the Laboratory and beyond to craft its emerging expertise at the future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC), a one-of-kind nuclear physics research facility that will be built at the Lab over the next decade, after Brookhaven’s flagship nuclear physics facility, the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, completes its research mission.
