Professor Nikos Varelas joined Urbana-Champaign’s Associate Professor Mark Neubauer in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the U.S.’s contribution to particle physics (the discovery of the Higgs boson, in particular) and to generally spread awareness about new advances in the field. Professor Varelas was on the organizing committee for the event, which aimed to inform Congress of the U.S.’s critical role in the Higgs boson discovery and apprise them of the field’s exceptional discoveries eminent in the years to come. Professors Varelas and Neubauer also visited with staff from the Congressional offices of Illinois representatives including Senators Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk and Representatives Randy Hultgren and Rodney Davis.
