“An Atom as an Onion”
Young-Kee Kim is the Louis Block Professor of Physics at the University of Chicago. She has devoted much of her research work to understanding the origin of mass for fundamental particles by studying the two most massive particles (the W boson and the top quark), as well as the Higgs particle, which gives mass to elementary particles. Between 2004 and 2006, she was the spokesperson of the CDF experiment at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory’s Tevatron, a collaboration with more than 600 physicists from around the world. From 2006 to 2013, she was Deputy Director of Fermilab. She is currently working on the ATLAS experiment at the LHC at CERN. She has served on numerous national and international advisory committees, councils, and boards and been honored with the Ho-Am Prize, South Korea’s Science and Education Service Medal, the University of Rochester’s Distinguished Scholar Medal, and Korea University’s Alumni Award. She has been a Sloan Fellow, a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
