André de Gouvêa earned his Ph.D. in theoretical particle physics at UC Berkeley working with Hitoshi Murayama. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the CERN Theory Division and the Fermilab Theory Group before joining the Physics and Astronomy faculty at Northwestern University in 2003, where he is currently an Associate Professor. His research is dedicated to particle physics phenomenology in general, and neutrino physics in particular. He has worked on a variety of neutrino-related topics, from solar and supernova neutrinos, to understanding the origin of neutrino masses and lepton mixing. He was elected Fellow of the American Physical Society "for exceptional service to the field of neutrino physics through innovative studies of possible neutrino properties and their experimental implications".
Most recently, André served as one of the Neutrino Working Group conveners for the 2013 APS Community Summer Study (a.k.a Snowmass on the Mississippi), the 2012 "Project X Physics Workshop" at Fermilab, and the 2011 "Fundamental Physics at the Intensity Frontier" Workshop. He is currently involved, as a theorist and a cheer leader, in the upcoming Fermilab g-2 and Mu2e muon experiments, and the LBNE project.
