Sarah Demers

Associate Professor of Physics

Yale University

Sarah Demers is an Associate Professor of physics at Yale University. She works on the ATLAS experiment at CERN and is particularly interested in using the signature of one of the standard model particles, the tau lepton, as a probe for new physics. She collaborates with Emily Coates, Lecturer in Theater Studiues at Yale University, on interdisciplinary work involving the connections between science and the arts. One of Coates and Demers’s collaborative projects is an Art/Science Video about the Higgs Boson and Dance titled, “Three Views of the Higgs and Dance”.  This work was supported with a grant from the New Haven Arts Council as part of the Reintegrate Project, aiming to foster the reintegration of the arts with the sciences.
