Nigel Lockyer

Fermilab

Nigel Lockyer began his tenure as Director of Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in September 2013. Under his leadership, Fermilab has realigned its mission with the recommendations of the Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel report and has set a course for world leadership in accelerator-based neutrino research through the construction of the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment and Proton Improvement Plan (PIP-II). As part of the mission, Fermilab plans to produce the most powerful, high intensity neutrino beams by upgrading the accelerator complex beginning with PIP-II. An experimental particle physicist, Lockyer spent six years at the helm of TRIUMF, Canada’s national laboratory for nuclear and particle physics, from 2007 to 2013. Lockyer holds a Ph.D. in physics from The Ohio State University, is a fellow of the American Physical Society and received the society’s 2006 Panofsky Prize for his leading research on the bottom quark.
