Dr. Mariangela Lisanti is an Assistant Professor for the Department of Physics at Princeton University. She received her B.A. suma cum laude from Harvard in 2005 and her Ph.D. from Stanford in 2010. After completing a postdoctoral fellowship at the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science, she joined the faculty in 2013. She is a theoretical particle physicist primarily interested in models of dark matter and their experimental signatures. Although dark matter comprises nearly 85% of the matter in the Universe, its fundamental nature remains unknown. Her research focuses on elucidating the particle and astrophysical nature of dark matter through its experimental signatures. Professor Lisanti has been a member of the EAC since the Summer of 2016.
