APS has appointed Mirjam Cvetič, Fay R. and Eugene L. Langberg Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pennsylvania, as the Lead Editor of Physical Review D (PRD). She takes over this role from Erick Weinberg of Columbia University, who has served as PRD’s Lead Editor since September 1996. Cvetič will begin her new role March 1, 2020.
“I am delighted to welcome Mirjam Cvetič as the new Lead Editor of PRD. Her energy, wisdom and broad vision will be a great asset in guiding PRD towards a bright future” said Michael Thoennessen, APS Editor in Chief. “I also would like to take this opportunity to thank Erick Weinberg, who led the journal superbly for almost 24 years.”
Cvetič received her PhD from the University of Maryland with a thesis titled “Origin of Mass Hierarchies in Gauge Theories.” After working at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center as a research associate, she took a second postdoc position at the University of Pennsylvania where she subsequently joined the faculty. She holds a secondary appointment in the Department of Mathematics and is also a member of the Center for Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Maribor, Slovenia. She is a Fellow of APS and Elected Member of the European Academy of Sciences and Art.
"It is an honor to be appointed the PRD lead editor," said Cvetič. "I am looking forward to working with its dedicated staff and editorial board to advance its key role as the premier journal of the broad high energy community."
