Kevin Pitts, a professor of physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will present “The muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab” at 4 p.m. Tuesday, February 2, in Moulton Hall, room 214. The talk is part of the Spring 2016 Physics Colloquium.

Pitts is a high-energy experimentalist who has made seminal contributions to the measurement and understanding of CP violation in bottom quark decays. He received a bachelor’s degree in physics and mathematics from Anderson University and a master’s and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the University of Oregon. After working as a research associate at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in the Collider Detector Facility (CDF) experiments, Pitts joined the faculty at the University of Illinois in 1999.

The event is free and open to the public. For accommodation requests or more information on the colloquium series, contact the Department of Physics at 438-8756 or email Kerry Stewart at
