SC’s New Associate Director for High Energy Physics

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that Regina (Gina) Rameika will be joining the DOE’s Office of Science as the Associate Director for the Office of High Energy Physics on November 7, 2022.

Gina is joining us from Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), where she spent much of her career in neutrino sciences and experimental particle physics. Her responsibilities have ranged from managing technical detector construction projects to leading the international science collaboration, DUNE or Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, which plans to carry out the world-leading experiment currently under construction as part of the DOE Long Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF)/DUNE-US Project.

More specifically, a few of her roles at Fermilab included serving as project manager for the Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) and for the MicroBooNE Project, as well as the Division Head of the Fermilab Neutrino Division. She was also an elected spokesperson of the 1,400-member international DUNE collaboration, in addition to serving as the DUNE Resource Coordinator and Construction Coordinator.

Gina has a Ph.D. and B.A. in Physics from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. She has also received multiple awards, including most recently, the 2022 APS Panofsky Prize for contributions to the DONUT Experiment and a 2019 Fermilab Trailblazer Award for contributions to the Long Baseline neutrino program.

Gina has demonstrated tremendous leadership in the national laboratory environment with DOE projects and with international science collaborations. We are thrilled to have Gina join the Office of Science, given her vast experience and skilled leadership.
