    Beatrice Franke

    I’m an experimental physicist in the field of high precision/low energy particle physics. Currently, I work at TRIUMF in of a small team of researchers who are taking part in one of the most fascinating pursuits in particle physics: the hunt for the electric dipole moment (EDM) of the neutron.

    I lead the experimental particle physics group at the University of Adelaide and am a member of CoEPP (the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics at the Terascale).

    I’m a member of the ATLAS and Belle II experiments where I’m using new techniques to search for physics we have yet to observe.

      Life’s a beach

      You work hard as a student and as a postdoc. You stumble into a great faculty job, where your university supports you, and you get to pick what you work on. As an added sweetener, that place of employment is a short drive from some lovely beaches, has gorgeous weather (the epic floods of 2016 notwithstanding) and is incredibly affordable. Sounds great right? That’s where I’ve found myself, Australia, and it’s really not what I had on my radar five or six years ago when I was frantically hoping to get a position to keep my research adventures in high-energy physics going. But here I am. With all good jobs in high energy physics research there comes a price.
