This page will be updated regularly with events and people that we’d like to highlight as well as links to resources that are relevant to women participating in science.

Scientist of the Week! 

Elena Long is a professor at the University of New Hampshire and an experimental nuclear physicist at Jefferson Lab in Virginia. She studies nucleon-nucleon interactions with deuterons (the nuclei of hydrogen isotopes) and probes fundamental properties of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) using high energy electron beams and lab-made targets. She has also worked extensively to make physics a more equitable environment for LGBTQ+ folks, founding lgbt+physicists in 2009 and working with APS to publish the LGBT Climate in Physics Report.
