Elise Novitski investigates elementary particle properties and fundamental symmetries via precision low-energy experiments. As part of the Project 8 and He6-CRES collaborations, her research uses the Cyclotron Radiation Emission Spectroscopy technique to precisely observe the energies of electrons emitted in beta decay. This enables the direct measurement of the neutrino mass and a test of the symmetries of the weak interaction. During her PhD at Harvard University, she worked on Penning-trap-based antihydrogen experiments and measurements of the electron and positron magnetic dipole moments, which test quantum electrodynamics and CPT invariance. In 2018 she became the Robertson Postdoctoral Scholar at the Center for Experimental Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Washington in Seattle, where she became a research assistant professor in 2022 and took her current position in 2023. She is a Member-At-Large for the American Physical Society's Topical Group on Precision Measurements and Fundamental Constants. In 2023, she was awarded the 2023 Stuart Jay Freedman Award in Experimental Nuclear Physics by the APS Division of Nuclear Physics.
