This picture was taken in 2002, shortly after I finished my PhD. Been doing this a while now! When I'm not doing this, I like playing drums; theres nothing like hitting stuff with sticks to let go of some stress!

Antonia Hubbard

Antonia Hubbard
Postdoctoral Researcher

Antonia comes from the DM-ICE dark matter experiment, and is trading taking data in the depths of the ice in the South Pole to taking data in outer space. She also has interest in neutrino physics applications of our technology.
