Saskia Mioduszewski

Biography

Professor Mioduszewski is in the field of experimental nuclear physics, focusing on relativistic heavy-ion collisions. She is interested in studying the governing interaction of nuclear matter, via its phase transition between normal nuclear (hadronic) matter and deconfined quark-gluon matter, the so-called Quark Gluon Plasma. Her research is done with the STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC).
