The compelling desire of PI Sau Lan Wu’s research group is to produce exciting physics results i.e. our primary motivation is physics discovery. Based upon this guiding principle, our main topics of research are those with great discovery potential. Wu started this task in 1977 when she joined Wisconsin as an assistant professor. In her career so far, she has participated in three major discoveries, in two of which she played a leading role, the gluon and the Higgs boson.
