Bonnie T. Fleming, a Professor of Physics at Yale University, was a Lederman Fellowship at Fermilab working on the MiniBooNE experiment. She is now the co-spokesperson for MicroBooNE, a Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber designed to examine low energy neutrino interaction phenomena and search for neutrino oscillations.
In her pursuit of next-generation, precision neutrino detection techniques, she combines a rigorous R&D program on Liquid Noble Gas detectors like the short-baseline neutrino experiments ArgoNeuT and SBND, and the long-baseline project, the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.
Fleming actively encourages women and girls to pursue science through mentoring. Programs include the APS Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics, and Girls Science Investigations. A fellow of the American Physical Society since 2014, Fleming started the “Girls Science Salon” to encourage middle school girls to get involved in science and Yales's “Girls Science Investigations” for middle school girls, funded through the National Science Foundation and Yale.
She has served as a member of the High Energy Physics Advisory Committee, HEPAP’s DMSAG (2007) and P5 (2014) sub-committees, the DPF’s CPAD committee (2014-2015) and the SLAC Science Policy Committee (2015-present). Since 2016, has been the deputy chief research officer for the neutrino program at Fermilab.
