Erik Ramberg

Dr. Erik Ramberg. PhD.
ISE Research Associate.
Head of Detector R&D.
The Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, IL, US.

Dr. Erik Ramberg got his PhD in Experimental Particle Physics in 1990, from the University of Maryland, and his BS in Physics in 1983 from the University of Kansas. He is as well Post-doctoral researcher at Carnegie Mellon University

He is currently head of the Particle Physics Division, in charge of generic detector research at Fermilab.  His responsibilities include managing the budget, arranging for research collaborations, and  supervising Fermilab’s test beam Facilities, where groups from around the world bring state-of-the-art particle detectors for testing in particle beams.  Amongst his profesional experience he counts being Installation manager for COUPP (Chicagoland Observatory for Underground Particle Physics).  This bubble chamber dark matter detector requires installation in various underground locations,  Co-manager of two Fermilab outreach programs – Saturday Morning Physics for high school students, and Internship for Physics Majors. He is Co-founder of Fermilab Sustainable Energy Club.
