Dan Ambrose (pictured in the middle) is an experimental High Energy physicist working on Mu2e, NOvA, and BES-III experiments.

For the last year Dan has been at Fermilab working on the developing quality control tests and building prototypes of the Tracker for the Mu2e experiment.

Dan attended the University of Minnesota from 2003 to 2008 studying both physics and math. It was there he developed an interest in High Energy physics working on research and development of the NOvA detector. He pursued research in experimental High Energy Physics under the guidance of Professor Edward Throndike working on CLEO-c and then BESI-III experiments. Dan received a Ph.D. from the University of Rochester in 2014.


Ph.D. in High Energy Physics from University of Rochester (2014)
BA in Physics and Math From University of Minnesota (2008)
