Jennifer Klay


Jennifer Klay is an expert in high-energy nuclear collisions, who helped discover the phenomenon of jet quenching in nuclear collisions with the STAR experiment at Brookhaven National Lab’s Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. She also helped to develop the upgrade detector for the ALICE experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, which will allow it to measure jet quenching in nuclear collisions there.

Dr. Klay is an assistant professor of physics at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. She was a staff scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory before joining the faculty at Cal Poly in 2007.
