The award recipients work at 59 colleges and universities, engaging in experimental and theoretical research into such topics as the Higgs boson, neutrinos, dark matter, dark energy and the search for new physics. High energy physics provides a deeper understanding of how our universe works at its most fundamental level.

Marlow works with Princeton’s High Energy Experimental group on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.

Marlow has been a member of Princeton’s physics faculty since 1984, including serving as department chair from 2001 to 2008. He is also faculty in the undergraduate engineering physics certificate program.

The award recipients were selected by competitive peer review under the Office of High Energy Physics within the DOE Office of Science. The award recipients will share a total of $75 million for projects lasting up to four years in duration. See the list of projects and more information.
