Dr. Kai Yi, an assistant research scientist in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, has been named a Large Hadron Collider Physics Center Fellow. One of 22 Fellows, Dr. Yi will continue his work on exotic mesons and searches for new physics at the LHC using rare processes. Additionally, he will continue as part of the UI effort on the upgrade of a large component of the CMS detector called the HCAL. The LHC Physics Center is at Fermilab where Dr. Yi is primarily based.
