Mayly Sanchez is an experimental particle physicist and professor of Physics and Astronomy at Iowa State University. Her research is focused on measuring the properties of neutrinos, subatomic particles that rarely interact with matter. She obtained a Ph.D. in Physics from Tufts University studying neutrinos originated in the Earth’s atmosphere. Prof. Sanchez was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University where she led studies on how these particles change flavors in flight using neutrinos generated at powerful accelerators outside of Chicago. Before joining Iowa State University, Prof. Sanchez was a staff scientist at Argonne National Laboratory. In addition to studying neutrinos, she also works on the application of new photodetector technologies to particle physics experiments. For this work she has been awarded a National Science Foundation CAREER grant and recognized by the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). Sanchez is a leader of the ANNIE experiment and has held several leadership positions in the NOvA and DUNE experiments. She is an APS fellow and member of the APS Division of Particles and Fields executive committee.
