April 2021: Grad Student Emma Oxford Featured on NPR
Graduate student Emma Oxford was featured on NPR's popular segment, Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me on April 10. She was asked to explain the significance of the recent Muon g-2 experiment results out of Fermilab.
"So a muon is an elementary particle," she told host Peter Sagal. "And the standard model of physics predicts that it will have particular magnetic moment. And this discovery suggests that it does not have the magnetic moment that we predict it should have."
